    May 25, 2019 - From magnum. No formal notes, over dinner. Dark and glossy. Sweet fruit, cherries, plum, spices, cedar on the nose. On the palate very generous with silky tannins, sufficient acidity, medium length. Drinking very well, but no rush.

    January 10, 2019 - 90 minute decant. A little fruit and some earthiness on the nose. Dark fruit and leather on the mid palate with integrated tannin on the finish. Became smooth with a velvet finish as the dinner progressed. Went extraordinarily well with Coq au vin in a dark wine sauce. The wine got better through the evening. looking forward to holding my other bottles for a couple years and seeing how the wine progresses. Lots of time to enjoy this wine.

    October 20, 2018 - Pretty good while not amazing, had 3 hours in decanter and could prob have done another hour,

    May 28, 2017 - This wine over delivered for me. Superb evolved balance and a surprising degree of elegance. Black fruits, hints of sandalwood and cinnamon. Full fruited but a nice tightness leaving it not overbearing. Very enjoyable.

    March 5, 2017 - Pretty much in-line with others' assessments of this wine. I prefer the Bin 707 from the '04 vintage; but as I was doing a P&P at a local restaurant (La Fontana, Seattle- a favorite of mine for over two decades now), I had a limited decanting time- though after about an hour, it opened nicely. Well-structured, strong; but not acidic on the palate at all; medium-length finish with mild hints of the Terroir.

    Overall, I enjoyed this wine tremendously with my tortellini Gorgonzola & Caprese. In my estimation, it is at its best right about now; but it will age another five to seven years, if I had to guess. The Bin 707s should age through the 2030s.
