    February 21, 2024 - Fragrant and wonderful. Nose of cut flowers, dark fruit and a hint if sweet spices?

    Palate us floral and earthy. Had out and not to do a proper study but damn it opens well.

    February 9, 2024 - Stood up for six hours. Decanted. Fine sediment still made its way through the filter. Leather, tea and savory notes. Blackberry and currant fruit carried on an acidic spine. Tannins are well incorporated and there are really no hard edges.

    January 24, 2024 - First experience with Lascombes. Still vibrant dark fruit while starting to show tertiary notes of graphite, cedar, leather. Silky tannins, balanced. Can easily age another 5-10 years
