    June 2, 2020 - Paired wonderfully with grill lamb. Solid structure, well balanced, and elegant. Still has quite a good amount of life left to it.

    May 4, 2019 - Blind: I thought this was a Napa Cabernet. It has all the hallmark traits of toasty oak, black cassis and that ooomph. Surprised at the low ABV.

    May 3, 2019 - Poured blind next to the 2001 Cos d'Estournel. This Corison initially led me to syrah when I first started to swirl it in the glass, showing a white/purple flower note. Also seemed to throw off something pungent, which I jotted down as higher ABV, although the table took me to task a bit because the bottle lists the wine as in the high 13% range. The palate seemed a bit more modern too, with a jammy quality. Blue fruit and some razzy red, plus black cherry. The finish then turned tight and rough so I bet this wine goes a lot longer.
