    September 10, 2017 - lush wine - cornucopia of red fruits, orange peel, hints of caramel. Very open today. slightly candied for my taste.

    April 21, 2017 - Thin and overly acidic; nothing like a decent right bank wine. Really disappointing.

    January 16, 2017 - Full of candied dark fruit. The wine is slowly evolving with traces of gravel, graphite and cedar on the midpalate. Would like to see more of the juicy fruit dissapate. I suspect it will evolve with significantly more time ( like 7-10 years) so this wine may improve noticeably.

    November 13, 2016 - Pulled cork, poured an hour later and drank over 2 hours. Soft fruit, nicely mature. Enjoy now.
