    February 12, 2021 - I found the tannins resolved and muted fruit on this, did not carry well into the second day.

    February 3, 2021 - sorta what I expect from half of the '06's I drink (burgs and Bordeaux), ie big, slightly heavy fruit, dense, etc... which isn't my thing, unless there is lift / acidity / etc to create some balance... this was fine but not what I would call "a good" Bordeaux example

    December 30, 2020 - Popped and poured, but should have decanted. Still so very youthful, and tanins have seemingly not resolved themselves. Will try again in a few years.

    December 26, 2020 - Opened, but did not decant, 1 hour before dinner. Dark red color. On nose, red currants, dried cherry, tobacco. On palate, full body, medium tannins, medium acidity and long finish. Flavor profile on palate consistent with nose. Very enjoyable. 92+/-

    (Château Léoville Barton) Opaque dark red violet color; lovely black berry, berry, black fruit poised nose; tasty, soft black fruit and blackberry palate with firm, sweet tannins; medium finish (drinking nicely now, but will clearly be even better in a few years)
