    February 19, 2019 - Monthly Tuesday group "The Dead Sparrow" #026; Bordeaux 2005 (by DJ): Dark berries, licorice and some vanilla in the bouquet. On the palate ripe dark berries, some bell pepper and autumn forest. Juicy and firm acidity, good concentration and length. Still in its young maturity stage. Nice wine.

    June 3, 2018 - Decanted for an hour. Fruit a bit dried and tired. Probably waited too long. This is a simple, medium-bodied and inexpensive Bordeaux that surpasses its price point. Dark fruit flavors, very little fine tannin remains, a bit of cassis and herbs.

    August 21, 2017 - Past its prime; very ripe and tired fruit. Still a great value.

    August 13, 2017 - Decanted for about an hour. For what I paid, it performed well. But, the fruit was too ripe and it didn't have much depth.

    November 16, 2016 - Decanted for 2 hours and was showing beautifully. Opulent, rich dark cherry fruit, a touch of cassis and dried rosemary. Deep red color not showing a lot of bricking and some fine tannins remain -- but no reason to hold it any longer. Given the price, this was a great cellar buy.
