    May 23, 2019 - Ample et costaud mais belle matière
    avec des tanins charnus et une longue finale.
    A besoin de temps.

    May 18, 2019 - This has gotten better with time. It was just too fruity when we purchased it to enjoy. That said, it was like our 8th bottle for the day so I'm not going to add too many tasting notes! Try again another time but it's aging well.

    May 7, 2019 - The nose seems dominated by red cherries, Perhaps with some hints of spices and new leather. We had this with eggplant parmesan and salad, and it was OK but slightly disappointed from pro reviews. Quite fruity, heavy with red cherries , and perhaps red raspberries, it's suddenly got a lot better with bread-and-butter and very, very nice with shards of parmesano reggiano! We will definitely have the other half of this bottle with something else, probably a pasta with Alfredo and pesto. Will add to this note at that time .
