    June 8, 2019 - Great nose with dried berries, leather, hints of tobacco. On the palate a bit unbalanced, with fine fruit and good acidity, but the tannin is a bit aggressive. It might soften with age, but I do not Think the fruit will last as well as the tannin, so drink now with a nice steak to match the tannin.

    May 17, 2019 - I really like the acidity in this wine. Lovely nose and mature flavour profile, with good length. Lots of cassis. Tastes like it has plateaued, but not on the descent yet.

    April 14, 2019 - PnP. Average at best. Tight nose. More bite than expected. More fruit than typical in a Bordeaux. Not bad, but better wines at this price point.

    December 27, 2017 - Nice blackberries, soft oak, would have been great if the alcohol would have been more restrained. Need a few more years.

    May 25, 2016 - If you're ever looking for an example of a wine that improved with age, look no further. This once ugly duckling has kicked it up from start to finish. The smoky, licorice, tobacco, earth and black cherry nose gets you. Lush, poised and polished on the palate, the wine is sweet, ripe, fresh and long.
