    July 10, 2021 - No decant for this bottle, just popped and poured. Beautiful dark garnet color and a rich combination of red and blue fruits greet you as you approach the glass. This is drinking great right now and I think its going to hold up and evolve for at least 10 more years. Most of the tannins are already smoothing out and the Bellevue profile is coming through.

    November 9, 2020 - No doubt super high quality but austere at this stage in the game. Wine starts to open at 2 hour decanter mark. Dark cherry, graphite. Gorgeous. Needs more time.

    September 20, 2020 - Less inspiring than previous half bottles. Decanted for 2h, but the nose and flavor profile are dialed back a notch from last time. 90/91

    July 20, 2020 - This time open for 5 hours. Same notes apply but ends with a bitter finish.

    June 8, 2020 - Decanted for 2h from a half bottle. So much fine oak and tobacco on the nose. On the palate red and black fruit, lots of mineral, graphite, some tannins and pepper on the finish. I enjoyed this more than the '16 malescot from last night. 92/93
