    July 17, 2019 - After reading my note from last year I was excited for this bottle. Either there is bottle variation or this wine is still in the process of shutting down. This one was hard as nails. Showed signs of ripe fruit but it was hiding behind a wall of acid and tannin. I feel like this needs another 10 years! I'll probably drink another next year though because I don't have that kind of discipline.

    May 13, 2019 - Margaux / Saint-Julien 2005 tasting (with many other wines too) (Restaurant Vineum, Rotterdam, NL): Tasted blind. Mature but lively appearance; good depth on the nose, quite evolved, crushed red berries, hints of red meat and spice, touch of salinity, warmth; slightly drying tannins, quite light on the palate, lacks some stuffing, subtle bitters; tight finish, not really convincing.

    April 28, 2019 - Wonderful wine. Beautiful finish. Still many years left in this one, but we were ready! Had with NY Times Eggplant, Lamb, and Yogurt casserole. Delicious!!!

    April 26, 2019 - Note: I use a scale on which 85 represents a very good wine.

    Very good, but no outstanding. Given the chateau and the vintage I expected more -- perhaps unrealistically.
    Regardless, took a little while to open up. I recommend decanting for an hour or so before serving.
    My primary reservation was that although the flavors were what you would expect from a St. Julien, they were no that pronounced.
    Not necessarily faded, (there was no dryness or staleness), just not that intense.

    I will see what the others are like.
