    June 14, 2021 - Nice wine, juicy, with a savory edge. Drinking fairly well in its youth.

    March 2, 2021 - Decanted for 3 hours. Juicy wine with hints of black currant, pencil shavings, mushroom, forest floor and liquorice. Tannins are still a bit tight due to the age but not overly drying. Slight bitterness towards the end. Overall, an acceptable bordeaux with enough complexity despite its youth.

    April 22, 2020 - Crimson-purple; cassis, blackberries, plums, vanilla; ripe currant/berry/plummy, cocoa, medium-full body, soft acidity, good structure, firm grainy tannins, lingering finish.
    Decanted 2 hrs. Lovely black currant nose with rich flavour and chewy tannins. Still needs time but went well with rib steak.

    January 8, 2020 - Vanilla toast, ripe currant and cocoa nose. Full-bodied with solid structure; smart and artfully-balanced; berry and macaroon finish.
    4/5
