    August 4, 2022 - Decanted 2-3 hours. Perfect cork. Dark ruby, long legs, on 👃 red fruit forward with ripe raspberries and vanilla. Fragrance is quite one dimensional and muted. Dry, highly acidic, very strong frontal tannins, milky full body with throat burning, ripe raspberry and licorice finish. This one felt young and can age longer.

    June 30, 2022 - Idealwine dinner: I recall I didn't like this much in a Leoville Barton vertical a few years back, preferring the 2001 and 2002. Similar impression today, despite the vaunted vintage it appeared a little blocky with the rough tannins dominating the black fruit.

    June 29, 2022 - Pronounced nose intensity with notes of spices, toast, fig, plum, black fruits. Medium+ acidity and medium+ tannin. Tannin is integrated.

    June 29, 2022 - 2 hour decant

    This wine was fairly open with aromas of cassis, dark red fruit, cedar, and vanilla. Palate was a bit lighter than expected with some sweet tannins and casual acidity. Medium finish…this bottle was not as concentrated as expected.
