    February 2, 2020 - Watching the Super Bowl with Walter. From half bottle. PnP. Purple in color. Dark fruit on the nose, but red raspberries and boysenberries(?) in the mouth along with a bit of cocoa and some cedar-cigar box nuance. Other complexities lurk in the background. This was an excellent foil for our roasted potatoes and mushrooms (+ roast beef sandwiches).

    January 19, 2020 - I simply adore pichon baron. This is a wonderful wine that has a soft chalk opening that quickly shows sweet cedar and baking spice. A wine to drink now thru 2030.

    January 3, 2020 - Chateau Baron Vertical ‘89-‘14 (Abigail’s Highland Park, IL): Deep color, wonderful intoxicating flavor, longer finish and so drinkable now.

    December 15, 2019 - Pichon Baron vertical 1982-2009 (Local wine club): Shy opening with leather, cedar, marzipan and sweet fruit. Dry, high acidity with the fruit a bit dried out. Then something happens after 2-3 hours and the wine grows tremendously in the glass. Forgot to make further notes...

    November 30, 2019 - 2nd try this year: Red fruits, cassis, tobacco, tea leaves, earth. Classical in style, with oak on the finish. Similar to my last try in October, this tasted very different in style to other Barons I’ve tried. Also, tasted older than it should, lacking vibrancy. Probably past it’s prime.
