    October 9, 2019 - Half bottle decanted for about an hour. Starting to get close to maturity. Still has plenty of fruit and tannin. Nose of ripe black berries and plums with hints of coffee and chocolate. Rich, expansive, complex with a long finish of black and red berries. Bright fruit. Tannins not fully resolved, but drinks beautifully with Porterhouse and sauteed shallots.

    September 5, 2019 - Solid tannin and fruit

    Dead arm or dead heart ... me ... not the wine

    August 16, 2019 - Wonderful nose--violets and black fruit. Easy to drink, soft tannins and good balance, but not quite the depth or complexity I expected. Perhaps it needs still more time to evolve from youthful fruit to full maturity.

    August 11, 2019 - Hasn't really budged in 18 years! Still a brute, but charming in its own way!
