    July 17, 2020 - Came into itself a couple of hours after opening. Vanilla, pepper, cigar. Delicious, and still has some years left to it.

    June 21, 2020 - This is really nice! A bit of earth and dirt completes a very tasty wine. Not overly deep, it nuanced and showing its pedigree. The rim is still crimson— no browning. I would still drink by 2025.

    June 6, 2020 - Decanted 2 hrs. I have read this wine is blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot with Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. As expected it was elegant, Delicious, silky, smooth and held well with a steak dinner. Drink now.

    June 5, 2020 - The nose is heavy perfume like Chanel #5. Great color, great nose and and the wine swirls on the palate with deep, dark fruit. It’s got a good amount of tannins and is just amazing

Rockss and Fruit

    (Cos d'Estournel) Nose of spicey oak, forest floor, cigar and some exotic spices. Palate was juicy and ripe with nice richness and concentration. Sweet and ripe tannins with great length. Young but very accesible now.
