    May 25, 2019 - Popped and poured and consumed over three hours. Deep, virtually opaque red-garnet color with little fading at the rim. Nose somewhat reticent at first but eventually blossomed into a dense, intense blend of earth, Asian spices, oak, and deep red fruits. Wonderfully rich and mouth-filling on the palate with loads of fruit, some lingering tannins, and lovely balancing acidity all creating a very harmonious and succulent wine that was never jammy. Long finish of coffee and tobacco.

    April 3, 2019 - Highly aromatic -baked cherries, ripe blackberries, cassis. Grip of tannins, graphite, and dried herbs dominate the palate, all enrobed in creamy rich oak. The fruit is concentrated but not sweet. Regal.

    December 25, 2018 - Cork looked to be intact. VA bitter on finish. Brett perhaps but no other barnyard present. Just off, could not drink

    November 11, 2018 - Very nicely matured with exqusite aromas of old cabernet, but the fruit on the paalte is not quite ripe, yet well aged and mature. Acid minus. Overal well made wine. Don't keep anymore, it is staeting to fade.

    August 3, 2018 - oicey with some oxidized bouquet that would disappear after 1 hour of decanting. Balanced with focused flavor but medium to short on finish. Still enjoyable and had delicious factor.

    (Havens Bourriquot) #1; COLOR-dark; NOSE-just gorgeous red fruit components (cranberry & rhubarb); and then some creamy vanilla & cedar; PALATE-a big wine with lots of flavor; this wine is so delicious and drinks like a $75-$100 wine; like a Right Bank Bordeaux (67% Cab Franc, 33% Merlot); a very young wine; getting tannins on the mid-palate; subtle rose petal meets grenache chocolate soufflé on the attack that is then overwhelmed by the bitterness on the back-end because this is a big young wine; a beast of a wine; big structure and big tannins, but the tannins are bitter and tight, but still quite sweet; this should really develop over the next 3-7 years and will easily last 12-15 years; I like the chocolate and sour red strawberries on the back-end; very nuanced for me; I love this wine and think it's spectacular; RP-92; ST-90/93; GV-92/93
