    January 2, 2020 - Nice wine, red fruits, tobacco, a little flat in the finish. Should have opened a few years back

    November 25, 2019 - Drinks and smells like a left bank with some italian flair. Open for business, roses, red fruits, silky mouthfeel. Long red fruit finish, earthy.Very nice.

    October 31, 2019 - (TFWE) brief note: tobacco, dried herbs, dark fruit, mineral, wood. Still a bit tight and tannic, good concentration. Would improve with some aeration. 91-93

    October 16, 2018 - Tasted blind vs. a group of Bordeaux blends from around the world. Ok, but not the winner. Standing up to time but drink now I'd say.

    April 13, 2018 - Soft, fully ripe with a finish of nutmeg. This is a gorgeous wine that I should have opened five years ago. Be that as it may, the tail end still offers beauty, grace and a pleasant warm up to the 09 Leoville Barton in the decanter. Drink em if you got em.
