    February 28, 2020 - This was a good bottle of wine, perhaps the last bottle was just off, this one was not. Nice nose with an appealing dark crimson color. On the palate, lively and energetic ripe dark cherry and berry fruits, good extraction and sweet to taste on the palate. This time the slightly tart/ acidic note was missing. 94+ points

    February 6, 2020 - Dark cherry, raspberry, cassis, loads of cinnamon, clove and creamy vanilla. Amazing purity and balance with a velvety texture that leaves you wanting more. Was a PnP, however got better with 2 hours in a decanter.

    December 20, 2019 - This one seems to have backed off rather significantly - Transitioning, maybe? The first bottle showed nice fruit extraction, more black cherry, currants and energy. This time around it’s still very good but noticeably lighter in terms of energy and extraction palate wise. Day two, a bit better, but there’s more of in the cellar so we’ll see where this wind goes this time. 92+93 points.

    December 9, 2019 - Myriad, Quivet, and others: Red fruit driven with deeply pitched red raspberry and cassis notes. Finishes sweet and savory, with red currant and cedar flavors adding nuance. 91-92 points.

    August 14, 2019 - This 2016 12C - G3 is very good. As previously stated, great nose and dark reddish burgundy color. On the palate, black cherry and berry fruits, good extraction and a slightly tart/ acidic and sweet to taste on the palate. Drinking really well right now. Day 2 the wine has backed off slightly but still impressive. 93 - 96 Points.
