    December 6, 2021 - Clearly better on the nose than the palate, aromatically you find a display of tobaccos, cigar box, smoke, cedar, green leafy herbs, cedar, and red currants. Full-bodied, powerful, and intense, the wine remains firm with a rustic edge to the tannins from start to finish. This is probably a modern-day example of 1928. At least that's my guess. I would really like to find out one day.

    November 20, 2021 - JK's 50th Birthday: Great vintage of LMHB, super classic aromatics with weight and clarity to match. 94-95

    November 9, 2021 - Quite lipstick and wood, still pretty ripe on palate. Felt older fwiw.

    October 8, 2021 - Rich and opulent, fruit is holding up nicely. Not a whole lot happening aromatically, but very nice.

    September 25, 2021 - From magnum. A dense version of this, could benefit from more time in this format. Well balanced fruit and savory notes.
