    April 3, 2020 - a little dark and dank on the nose but fruity and acidic palate. I would drink sooner than later. Very good though. A little air to blow some bottle funk off is all that's needed. Cheers!

    February 5, 2020 - Outstanding wine, but a slightly softer this time around. I would describe this wine being very much in line with my notes previously written. 95+ Points

    January 26, 2020 - Decanted for one hour and it is open. Did not show much change over next two hours. Very similar to a year ago with it becoming just a bit softer.

    Blackberries and forest floor. Blackberries, black cherry, baking spices and a touch of mocha. It is smooth and sexy on the palate like it is doing the tango on your tongue the entire time. Long smooth finish. It appears to be entering a spot where there will not be significant improvement.

    November 15, 2019 - Drank to celebrate our move. Fairly open on PnP.
    Purple (plum) and blue fruits. Ripe Napa fruit, cocoa, dark berries, spice.
    Plush and velvety.
    Agreed -- big and soft at the same time.
    Long and powerful finish.
    Me - 95, Wife - 94

    July 20, 2019 - A very strong showing that was a little confusing on multiple fronts. 1st, I thought I pulled a '16, but actually opened the '15. 2nd, it was ready to go aka, pop and pour. In general, I find that 2015s need time to open up and this did not. 3rd, it's from a rugged hillside vineyard in Oakville, which usually means that it has strong tannins and needs additional time to open up.

    On this night, it just all came together. Dark purple and red with terrific rich smells. Lots of black, blue and red fruit, very well integrated tannins, kind of creamy with hints of vanilla and chocolate notes. Lot's of mineral and tar as well.

    All in all, a great bottle of wine!

    Coravin pour last night. I will finish it up tomorrow and re-rate it if it changes. I would expect it to hold its own or get better as I will give it a slight decant. It actually did not get better and was a little flat with less tension on night #2.
