    September 28, 2020 - Tasted blind. Fresh nose with some green notes, dark fruit, deep and young. Quite tannic still on the palate with dark fruit, tobacco, and underwood flavors suggesting the age. Long and very good finish. I was very positively surprised by this, my WOTN.

    February 15, 2020 - Still drinking great! Tannins still intact, but softened and loads of fruit still present.

    March 24, 2019 - Still vigorous, nice acidity, well integrated and balanced, soft tannins, dark berries after 22 years! We picked up our new allocation today and are doing our best to drink the oldies, this one was still wonderful and not over the hill

    November 11, 2017 - Very strong nose of fresh leather with hints of tar and some subtle bramble fruits. This is like walking into a leather factory. Very nice and smooth palate. Some sweet, though subtle, red fruits, with hints of slightly cooked mint.

    A day later still going strong. More cherry liquor, with some hints of tar, and some nice acidity. Definitely a bit better the first night, but still pleasant.

    January 16, 2017 - Drank last night along with a 2001 Solaia and a 2000 Lynch Bages.
    Showing no signs of age with years left. Offering dark fruit, leather, and celery notes. This wine has a lot of personality and held up well against the other great wines.
