    November 5, 2021 - I could not wait to open another bottle. The wine was similar to my tasting note from 4 June 2021. Different was that also red berries could be smelled on the nose at the beginning. This disappeared after decanting. This time I used the Riedel Veritas Cabernet/Merlot glass. In my opinion, the wine is less analytical from this glass than from the Zalto Bordeaux glass. At this juvenile stage, less analytical is an advantage because the aromas are better integrated. If you are drinking the wine now, I recommend decanting the wine for a few hours.

    August 25, 2021 - This is consistant with my last note. While the tannins are still dominant the fruit still bursts thru with a couple of hours of air. I really believe with 5 plus years of aging this will start to show its potential.

    August 19, 2021 - Opened and allowed to breathe about 60 minutes before consuming. Opaque color. Aromatically this is dense and tight fisted. Does open up later in the evening with cassis, coffee, incense, and anise. On the palate this checks the box on a youthfully sturdy St Estephe with a very structured wall of dense tannin yet the Anise, crushed black fruits, plum, Turkish coffee, smoke, and salty iodine blend together effortlessly to make this a remarkably balanced wine. There is a medium bodied acidity that offers great lift and balance before the tannic structure steps back in for the closure that hangs on the finish for over 45 seconds.

    This was my first 2016 Bordeaux. This was a very well made wine with off the charts QPR. If you can find it, buy more. I purchased a half case of 2018 and it will be a treat comparing the two.

    I have not consumed many of my 2014’s, so comparisons are limited. However, this nudges out the 2014 Leoville Poyferre I have in 375 ml, and I love that wine. This trails by a small margin my experience with the 2014 Montrose. This crushes my 2014 Gloria and d’Armailhac experience. I think this is that good.

    Day 2 - This has opened up with more aromatic floral perfume and tobacco. The palate is every bit as good as day 1 though with a hint of dryness. The richness of the fruit remains prominent.

    July 26, 2021 - Opened 2015 & 2016 together to compare: for me 2015 slightly ahead on the nose and 2016 slightly ahead on the palate. However, quite similar and both still in the fruit phase. Very good price/quality indeed.
