    March 2, 2022 - Stag's Leap Library Wine Tasting (Heritage Gallery - Chicago IL): Walk around tasting, all direct from the winery. Big but accessible fruit wit silky tannins. Lots here, both elegant and powerful. Good depth and length. Upside from here.

    January 29, 2022 - At first sniff, you could easily mistaken this for Bordeaux. Lots of graphite and stoniness, with a floral (violet and lavender) finish. Silky, yet still plenty of grippy tannins left, fruit has died off slightly but dark fruits and red fruits are still prevalent. I bought this before prices went up which allows me to judge this against what I paid, vs what it is now. At $250CDN this is a more refined version of the SLV/Fay; at $450, I might wonder what makes this worth considerably more than the SLV, and I would prefer the latter. Consumed first of 2 bottles, and I look forward to comparing in 5-10 years time.

    December 22, 2021 - Clean mineral slate, ripe berries, bergamot tea, pencil lead.
    The price seems a bit of a reach.

    November 4, 2021 - Liked but didn’t love. Wanted to. But a little more subdued than I expected.
