    June 21, 2022 - Four years later and it has shed some baby fat. Still modern for sure, and still not the last word in elegance and terroir. But it's a big bottle of yum. Chocolate covered cherries. But not as sweet as it was years ago. One point higher by my incredibly scientific scoring system. I don't think it ever surpasses the 2016 though.

    June 2, 2022 - From a bottle shared by Everything Ahead. This opened up quickly in the decanter. Ripe dark fruit, a little heat and spice, and developing complexity. No overt oak or too-ripe flavors. Well balanced and quite pleasurable now, as I've found with several left bank 2015s opened recently.

    June 1, 2022 - This is a modern Bordeaux for sure, but it is a real pleasure with some time in the decanter. Lots of dark fruits, chocolate, and a voluptuous mouthfeel. Alcohol is high, but quite well integrated. This will likely improve over the next 5+ years, but a wine that can be enjoyed now, especially if given some air. Not as complex as the 2016, but a strong showing.

    March 20, 2022 - Four hour decant. This wine is fruit forward now but showing great potential. Lots of oak notes and quite lush due to the 80% merlot. The cab franc provides a supportive backbone. Tannins are fine and the finish goes on and on. Glad I bought a case. Will visit again in 5 years.

    December 27, 2021 - Still tasted like a barrel sample. Primary fruit flavors, iron, blood. Quite dense. Overall, fairly unpleasant, but at the same time, formidable and impressive. Not much evolution the second day, either. I assume that someday - ten years hence? - it will be great, but withholding a rating for now.
