    December 10, 2020 - Pnp. Still bright in the glass with a nose of tobacco leaf. Leisurely enjoyed over 2.5 hours, and a good wine to have with food. The lushness faded later and the finish sharpened a bit. Still a very nice wine, paid $80 and it doesn’t quite meet its price....

    November 18, 2020 - Amazing wine. Highly concentrated and extracted, not your typical bordeaux. Somewhat vegetal and I got a LOT of green pepers. The wine is extremely similar to a Don Melchor from Chile. Not your typical Bordeaux but also you will never think its a Napa blend. I loved the wine and I think that it is close to its peak. Very elegant

    September 7, 2020 - Coravined a glass last night. Needed about 2 hours to open then was in a perfect spot. No rush here but with a proper decant you will be well rewarded.

    August 1, 2020 - Very much the same notes as 6 years ago. The tanning softened nicely even though you can still feel it. The same fruit is still there to balance the weight and tannin. Very enjoyable and balanced. Loved to see it evolved the way I expected it to. A great wine in the making. It shall still get better from here.
