    May 21, 2019 - A fairly distinct barnyard note on the nose here. I don't mind it, but my better half did not care for it.

    This isn't bad, but I prefer the 2005 right now.

    January 30, 2019 - I really like these wines. Just pops after about 20 minutes with exotic aromatics. Minerally, soil-inflected, and soft juiciness. 91-92

    September 1, 2018 - I was very impressed with this wine (esp for the price). We served it right after a '90 Mouton which was just rocking. And while this wasn't in the same class, it wasn't totally offputting either (which sometimes happens when you change the level of wine being drunk in the middle of a dinner). It's a wine made for food and it paired quite well with a smoked fillet and in some ways maybe a bit better with the pasta course. Touch of brambles and spice. Less fruit. Nice. Would look for this again.

    June 14, 2018 - Light translucent ruby; earthy red fruit on the nose.

    Lighter bodied, ripe red fruits, decent acidity for lift - not bad.

    April 17, 2018 - Red-fruited nose with a savory note as well.

    Light-bodied with good supporting acidity - fairly straightforward, but decent enough for a Tuesday night.
