    February 20, 2020 - Fantastic wine. Drinking well … again. So smooth and elegant (yes, elegant … for a CdP). Tantalizing berry aromas, figs, tar, earthiness, spices, and freshly ground coffee beans.
    Flavours repeat …. dusty drying tannins, licorice coming in at the end with a long finish. Beautifully balanced

    February 1, 2020 - Delicious aromas of sweet red fruits and spices. Sweet and intense fruit also in the mouth. Rich, concentrated and impressive. Not very elegant, though.
