    November 25, 2019 - Deep maroon. Ripe plum and black currant fruit. Massive cassis and pencil lead notes. Firm tannins starting to integrate on the finish. Really terrific now and will certainly continue to improve. Wish current vintages were not so pricy.

    March 26, 2019 - Massive earth tones on the nose. Chalkiness and

    Smooth initial.attack which is delicious and then with some strong acidity that could still soften and integrate.

    February 3, 2019 - A dense, powerful wine, the 2005 Pluribus is just starting to show the first signs of maturity. Blueberry jam, bittersweet chocolate, spice, leather and tobacco all take shape in the glass. There is no shortage of density to the 2005, but like many wines from this era, the oak component is quite pronounced.

    May 14, 2018 - Initially milk chocolate and raspberries. The chocolate faded. Now cassis, graphite, a hint of cigar box, vanilla. Tannins are silky smooth. Well integrated. Can age more but is ready now.

    October 28, 2017 - BYO - US wines (Trio): Insanely young black currant fruit with lots of depth and intensity.
    A stunning wine and I can't believe how young this still feels! Very impressive!
