    July 17, 2019 - Medium to full bodied, well balanced with integrated tannins and dark fruits. Elegant and satisfying from first sip. In a good spot with an hour decant. 94-95

    June 14, 2019 - Best version of this wine so far. Blueberry, some rhubarb and a waxy feel to it. A really balanced wine with acidity and tannin in check with the fruit. Quite revealing for a French style young Cabernet. One of the most balanced wines I have had this year.

    March 9, 2019 - Drank from a magnum at dinner after the Saturday event of the Concours D'Elegnace at Amelia Island. I couldn't agree more or add better color than CT member BABIK. Bravo to those notes for filling in my impressions on the wine and to the wonderful guests I was with tonight.

    March 31, 2018 - Decanted and drank over two hours. Blue fruit revolution from fresh sweet blueberries to baked blue holiday spiced compote/cake. Amazing how the barrel spice and tannin doesn’t hit until you sip and then Wham, it’s all backwardsville from the first sip. Don’t know if JD was chasing down pork belly with this but we consumed with food and I wouldn’t touch this for another 5 years at least. This is a caged panther that just needs time to show it’s elegance. 94 for now w huge upside. Save your bottles!
