    September 1, 2019 - 6th/7th try this year: Nose of black fruits, vanilla, kirsch. Tasted black fruits, liquorice, with a slight tobacco and black tea finish. Slightly dry. Improved over the night with decanting. This is in a good place now. Open now

    August 17, 2019 - Wow...excellent! Agree with others...this is ready to drink now. Complex for a 2006. Fruit and earth in harmony. On the lighter side of full-bodied and more smooth than powerful. If the finish were a bit longer, this would be a 94-95. Decant for a bit of air and for sediment. Paired nicely with shredded stewed beef.

    August 12, 2019 - Drank back-to-back with the 06 Montrose and while the Cos was a very nice and fairly easy drinking Bordeaux, I liked the Montrose a bit more. This is soft and round with dark fruits and some wood spices. Integrated tannins. Seems fully ready to drink. The Montrose had more depth but also seemed a more serious wine, perhaps not entirely ready but overall more profound

    August 2, 2019 - Quite good, but many many years ahead of this one. Cellar for a while if possible.
