    March 25, 2019 - Yet another corked bottle of this wine. This one more severely tca infected than the last one.

    March 17, 2019 - Having this wine twice in 3 days means it is popular! Red and black fruit, cherry, currant, tannins, perfume. Very tasty with our roast, herbal chicken. Like a young Pomerol. Drink now or hold -- but drinking well, now.

    February 14, 2019 - Drank over 2 nights in Chicago. Second night 1/2 bottle opened for about 30 minutes prior to drinking, drank over 2 hours

    Prior notes:"Dark purple color, still looks young. Nose of dark fruits, smoke, plums, cedar. Pungent at first, settles in after 30 minutes. Really jumped out on the decant..."

    Still full bodied, smooth texture. Dark berries, licorice a bit more prominent with this bottle. The air time benefited the wine. In a good spot, should last a while but not likely to improve (IMO). Great QPR
