    September 24, 2020 - PnP over one night. Still some life here, but definitely on the declining side of the slope. Dusty gritty bite on the palate, with some notes of blood, saddle. A bit sharp and closed. Curious about the note about fruit showing up on day two. I will not have the opportunity to test that on this bottle, but have two more. All in all perfectly fine. No wow factor here. But also no clear flaws either. This is starting to open up nicely after a few hours. Unfortunately I am done with the bottle. Upping this from 86 to 89. Could be higher in a few years, or with a long decant.

    February 24, 2020 - This 20 year old CDP is still lively. Drank it over two nights. Lots of typical flavors including blood, saddle leather and minerals complimented by subtle raspberry fruit. Yes, I was surprised and pleased by the fruit which did not show till second night.

    November 1, 2019 - Had been patient with this 2002 WS Wine of the Year. Not disappointed at all, but not much a surprise either. A solid CDP with some complexity and depth but not a WOW wine. Pleasant nose, lots of dark fruits, prune, dates, a bit of leathery, white pepper, very enjoyable. Fully agreed with WS to give 93pt.
