    February 8, 2019 - Drank Feb 2019 with lamb chops, fresh eucalyptus garrigue brush notes on red berries, balanced in mouth with moderate tannins still, finish a little dry and not living up to up front flavors and nose

    December 31, 2018 - Deep purple color. Nose of Cherries. decanted for over an hour but still uneven and unbalanced. Nice fruit of cherries, berries and plums, but astringent. Disappointing for what should be a premier wine.

    August 19, 2018 - Dark garnet in color with no evidence of bricking. Nose of overripe berry, creosote and a hint of cough syrup. On the palate, rich and full bodied with layers of blackberry, mocha, cassis and allspice. Medium finish with a touch of vanilla. Tannins are fully integrated so this will certainly be wonderful for a couple of years but is unlikely to improve further.

    July 21, 2018 - This was even better than expected at this age. Still incredibly big with lots of pepper and tobacco. This clearly still has a few years left but it won't get better than now.

    June 9, 2018 - Still hanging in there, but getting a bit long in the tooth. 1 more bottle, plan to drink soon.
