    February 18, 2021 - Decanted 2 hours ahead. Dark, garnet red. Blueberries, rhubarb, boysenberry, spice and cassis. High alcohol and intense, unctuous mouthfeel feel. This wine could use another 5+ years which will easily improve the score.

    p.s. golapkis and charred cauliflower

    April 29, 2020 - 3 hr decant. Full bouquet with raspberry, kirsch, roast beef, rose, juniper berries. Taste had red berries and blueberry, along with mocha. Fine tannins and a silk/lanolin feel. Copious and very fine tears on the glass. Very fine. Rich but not overbearing. Lately my tastes have swung back to old school Bordeaux but being as objective as I can there is no denying that this is the real deal. Outstanding. Probably at peak but at least another 5 years there if not more.
    Score: 95. Relative to expectations :+

    February 19, 2020 - Decanted and served. Showing perfectly right now with full, completely balanced and integrated palate and very long finish with notes of fine herbs and olive oil. An absolute delight.

    February 4, 2020 - I Guess I Just Don’t Get It (Ft. Lauderdale, Florida): Ripe, showy and concentrated. Pretty good actually but doesn’t stand out in this lineup except for the price.
