    August 8, 2019 - Leathery, fresh, spicy, slender, tertiary, totally classical, lovely balance, mature but very youthful, good persistence.

    May 6, 2019 - This was a bit of a rollercoaster. At various points after opening, I questioned whether the bottle was flawed: Is this oxidized? Does this have a VA problem? Is it corked?? Eventually, it miraculously came together somehow, with a vibrancy you get from well-made natural wines.

    March 27, 2019 - Approximately eight months later: beautifully integrated and harmonious. Our last of this vintage; highly enjoyable over three nights.

    March 15, 2019 - Quite the same performance as in August 2018. But I'm now less confident about the further aging potential not only because of the fact that this bottle shows more oxidative notes, but more because I have learned more about these wines. The producer suggest a drinking window of a few years after release and they should know about that. 5/12/17/8, -2022
