    July 6, 2022 - Super de beau vin raffiné et peaufiné.
    Texture velouté, tout en finesse, grand raffinement.
    Des mures et des bleuets avec une pointe de
    menthol qui lui donne une grande fraicheur.
    C'est bien ample et super gouteux, les tannins sont assez fins
    et la finale bien longue nous laisse sur des relents de
    terre et de graphite.
    SUPERBE!

    December 3, 2021 - Three hour slow ox. Blueberry jam on buttered toast and baking spice on the fun nose. Smooth, tongue drying palate. Full tannins on the longish finish. This is not as silly as it sounds. It’s a serious, yet subtly hedonistic Merlot.

    October 1, 2021 - This. Good!!! Very nice mix of fruit, mild tannins and some acidity. Feels still young but perfect for drinking now. Oak with vanilla is definitely present but lovely overall.

    September 17, 2021 - Brief notes. Bretty, blew off after 1 hr or so in decanter. Revealing high toned cherry, plum, blackberry, ground coffee, black truffle, very restrained vanilla/clove. Palate is well balanced, not leaning jammy at all. Medium+ bodied, soft Merlot tannins and really great acidity. Mid-long finish on deep fruit.

    August 8, 2021 - Big wine with black and blueberries galore. Still young, but went great with 21 day dry aged cherry smoked porterhouse steak!
