    March 21, 2019 - Aromas of violets and candle wax (ok, I know), finishes with a tart metallic finish.

    March 2, 2019 - I've had this twice in a 5 month period. When first opened and tasted it was really good. Not just good, it was really good. A really nice, complex bouquet, a distinct taste that made me think I was drinking a wine of distinction. We drank it slowly, wanting to fully enjoy it. Sometime around the 2 hour mark it had begun to taste sharp and angular. By the 3rd hour it seemed to have fallen apart and was unrecognizable compared to when we first opened it.

    August 29, 2018 - I really liked the first sip of this, very characteristically merlot fruit, soft and plummy and classically restrained while still having a nice plumpness to it. Unfortunately it soon got marred by very raw and woody oak.

    June 16, 2018 - Tasted next to 2008. Quite fruit-driven, slightly spicy, soft tannins. Not much depth but well balanced. 88-90

    March 12, 2018 - Loads of truffle infused cherries, silky, soft, elegant textures and a refined, sweet, plum and cherry finish combine to make everything work here. The property was sold to new owners in early, 2018.
