    August 26, 2020 - Still alive and holding up. Good ruby colour, the nose is disappointing and closed but the palate showed nicely with sweet fruit with minerals and herbs. It is a bit simple to gain a higher score but very nice to drink

    August 4, 2020 - Over the hill. Tried it over 5 hours and it did not improve. Poured it out, life’s too short.

    February 15, 2020 - Saturday Blinds at Prarie Grass (Prarie Grass Cafe, Northbrook IL): Nose: The nose is perfumed and layered with dark red cherries, cranberries, cassis, smoke, tobacco, dark red florals, herbs, crushed rocks, and cedar notes. There is excellent depth and balance with a level of elegance that makes me come back to the glass.

    Taste: The feel is medium bodied with medium acidity and silky, medium tannins. The feel is gorgeous and polished with dark red cherries, cranberries, cassis, tobacco, smoke, and crushed rocks.

    Overall: This is gorgeous and exactly what I want out of a mature bordeaux. The nose is perfumed and nuanced while the feel has that level of silk that good aged bordeaux can bring.

    February 15, 2020 - Classic aged Bordeaux. And very typical of the vintage. Drink up if you got em, pass if you don’t.

    (Domaine de Chevalier Pessac-Léognan) Showing some maturity here. Good colour, bricking a little at the rim. Mature, gravelly, sweet perfumed fruit on the nose. A touch metallic. Big, full, sweet palate, with piles of fruit and plenty of tannin. Correct acidity. Showing some development but will improve for an impressive five to ten years yet.
