    April 12, 2019 - Popped, aerated, poured. Quite tight on first sip, as expected. Opened up nicely within an hour, with all the fire gone. Still fruit forward, but not so much. The earthy balance is quite prominent, and it owns the finish, which is deep and long without being too sweet. I’d prefer a little more sweet through the finish but a great wine overall.

    January 29, 2019 - Very balanced with nice acidity that made for a great pairing with lamb and beef. Aromas of dark fruit (blackberries and plum). Kind of a boomerang finish... absent for a while then coming back with some nice complexity. Drinking very well now. I wouldn’t let this age many (any) more years.

    December 22, 2018 - Good but never great. Not overly fruity and balance improved after grainy tannins receded after a couple hours of opening, but flavors remained congested. Drinkable now but I would hold in hopes of improvement.

    December 2, 2018 - A good bottle from St. Emillion would be a much better wine for the same money spent, quite frankly. Tasted throughout several hours of decanting at varying temps. Fairly ripe, overall, with limited complexity; the fruit is overly rich, to my taste.
