    February 23, 2019 - Just lovely paired with a main course of Beef Wellington.
    VERY closed out of the bottle but after a 1-2 hour decant, it was expressive with smooth tannins. A crowd pleasing dry red wine.

    February 15, 2019 - Wonderful wine. Better with rare rack of lamb. Smooth. Still tannic. Drinking nice but will drink well for some time. Dark. Good finish.

    January 20, 2019 - Day 1. The wine was quite acidic and closed. Virtually no fruit present.

    Day 2. Classic left bank aromas but with a reserved nose which requires quite a bit of inhaling to get to any aroma. The palette is black cherry, loamy earth and a very slight amount of cigar ash on the finish.

    This wine requires hours and hours of decant to resolve and should not be just popped and poured.

    December 31, 2018 - Outstanding wine. A slight lean toward a modern style, but it still needed food. It was fabulous with lamb chops. I decanted it for almost two hours. It had a round mouthfeel with a seamless texture. Lots of dark fruits and a bit a tannin. The tannins should melt away in the next year or two. I only have one more bottle. A shame!
