    December 11, 2022 - No obvious flaw but this was quite strict and closed, with prominent tannic structure. Fruit was rather hidden and then. Guessing this is just in an odd phase. No change despite 6hr decant.

    September 20, 2020 - Lovely light to medium bodied bordeaux. Best slightly chilled straight from cellar. Slightly earthy, but with nice sweet plum and red cherry fruit. Nice complexity and balance for the price, but not going to mistake this for a Grand Vin. Nice match with a Coq au vin.

    April 9, 2020 - Very sound cork. This bottle fresh looking, clear red. Violets on the nose. Drank without airing. Fairly soft, receding fruit. Light bodied. Unobtrusive tannins. Appreciated the "old-time" alcohol level.

    March 3, 2020 - Slight bricking. Deep ruby color. 45-minute decant. Drinking very nicely right now. Merlot-driven fruit profile with red berries. Impressive smoothness and length. Doubt it will improve, so enjoy now and over the next 2-3 years.
