    May 14, 2022 - This is in a good spot now if you give it a brief decant. Some rose petals come through on the palate across the dark red fruit. They show on the nose as well. Finish is medium to a bit short. Still has some tannins but don't see this improving much beyond this.

    December 18, 2020 - Much nicer than the 2013 vintage of the same wine, consumed a week or two ago. This vintage was much more balanced between fruit and earth, sweet and savory. Still a fair amount of light, red fruit on the palate but balanced by some, forest floor, some gravel, and some mushroom. Still medium bodied with medium finish. Not necessarily a great QPR but still, a nice vintage.

    December 2, 2020 - Very floral on the nose! Not as full bodied as 2 years ago, I think this is in the "as good as it gets" window. Probably time to drink, now, into 2021. Catch it at this stage.

    July 20, 2019 - Floral notes hint of vanilla after 60 min. No obtrusive tannins. Nice lighter wine on the palate for a warmer night.

    April 14, 2019 - Bought 4 bottles several years ago. Have been following it's progression. Opened the 3rd of 4. It's at a good drinking window now. Drank over 3 days. Day 2 &3 are best. It has mellowed and gotten much smoother now, but has not lost it's firm and balanced structure. Should lay down for 5+ more years, and might improve slightly.
