    October 2, 2021 - This was drinking very nicely with pnp, but probably could have shone more of its quality with an hour or 2 decant time.

    September 30, 2021 - A real treat - lovely aromatics of spicy red fruit, mint and tobacco leaf. Medium bodied packing excellent depth of flavor - not much fruit but plenty of earthen tones with a dose of leather and tobacco. Very masculine - even a little austere. My impression is that it is easily going strong another 10 years or more. Exceptional experience.

    September 10, 2021 - Drank first from Coravin a few months ago. Finished second half of bottle last night, with a delicious rib eye, mac n cheese, baked potato, ceasar salad. Excellent wine. Drink up.

    August 4, 2021 - Best Bordeaux I have had from my cellar!

    Had at home midweek (YOLO!) with lamb rack with a mint, almond , Evoo chutney.
    Absolutely lovely. Little sediment in the bottle. Smell was interestingly earthy and savory … others describe as meaty and I can see that… somewhat like what a Rhone or Syrah wine can show.
    Flavor profile was totally left bank with smooth tannins and dark fruit.

    Great wine. Wish I had more.
