    December 4, 2021 - Graphite, toast, very closed vs 96, 99 or 01. Some black olive and balsamic. Long finish but still very tight. The wine came from the winery directly. Not ready yet.
    Detailed tasting experience refers to my 96 vintage note.

    October 9, 2021 - Mid-Aged Cabernet Sauvignon Lunch (Mostly Double Blind) (Pixca - Highland Park IL): Double blind from magnum. Correctly identified as Old World, non-French, then Italian, but I thought there was more Merlot and lots of Cabernet Franc here. Very good fruit, faint barnyard, but the structure is just too much in charge here. Disappointing given the vintage.

    October 9, 2021 - Reductive, new world on the nose but old world on the palette.

    July 8, 2021 - Day one after a 2 hour decant this was not showing much. Vacuvined and retried the next day and it had blossomed with stunning aromatics of black cherry, cedar, herbs and leather tones that lead to a beautifully proportioned blackberry driven palate that is all about finesse, depth of flavor and good acidity that carried through the long finish.

    June 17, 2021 - FOUDUVIN-Club de dégustation de l`Estrie- Dégustation DÉCONFINEMENT Juin 2021; 6/16/2021-6/21/2021 (Retaurant AVV La Suite de Sherbrooke): Des notes d`épices et de fruits rouges.
    Du cuir, de l`anis et du poivre avec un peu de terre.
    Il y a aussi des prunes avec des framboises.
    Les tannins sont bien enrobés et la finale de longueur moyenne.
    Très bon.
