    November 19, 2021 - I was surprised at how accessible this was, although clearly in need of more cellar time to be at its best. Chalky tannins, integrated alcohol and acid, dark fruits. Really nice for a baby wine but will be excited to try when it matures, lots of potential.

    November 18, 2021 - I bought this on a whim. I don’t like it, I love it for an everyday anytime wine. What it lacks in complexity it makes up in smoothness and light tannins. At 13% alcohol you can enjoy the grapes and not have to suffer the taste of alcohol. I will be going back to the store and hope I can get more at $59 or less. It’s coupon week.

    November 14, 2021 - Commanderie de Bordeaux - Leoville Barton/Satorious Zoom Tasting: Small pour for a winemaker tasting - PnP but waited about 20 mins for wine to aerate in the glass. Nose was sweeter than the '09 showing dark and red fruit with some purple flower. Palate was fruit forward, showing off a hedonistic side of the wine, but not so much tertiary flavors at this point. I would expect this wine to gain additional complexity with more bottle age. It certainly has the tannins, fruit and acidity to age gracefully for quite some time, and I would expect it to have a nice balance of fruit and tertiary flavors in another 8-10 years. 92 today for its hedonistic pleasure, but a chance to pick a point or two with additional time.

    November 13, 2021 - Showing a lot of promise, a bit rough at this stage, I would give it 10 years and drink 2031-38.

    November 1, 2021 - Black purple color. Blue/black fruits, cedar, earth. Medium + body. Longer finish. Really nice. Was too young on day one. Day two was better. Needs a few years, but drinkable with very long decant.
