    May 2, 2021 - Still has a lot of nice fruit but pretty well balanced. Has a nice spiciness that is quite good; better than I expected!

  • Charlie C Does not like this wine:

    December 12, 2019 - Disappointing showing. The nose was slightly musty and time and air did not help it. Dark fruit on the palate but just a bit faded; some spice notes. Tannins are nicely resolved, good acidity and balance. Short undistinguished finish. Nothing stands out here and the mustiness is off-putting. Perhaps it was better younger. Parker's review would have you believe that this would go out through 2035 -- nonsense. No score because of age, but it would be a 79 if I was posting a score for the record.

  • John Dunlap Does not like this wine:

    April 7, 2017 - Although the ullage was reasonable the cork was incredibly spongy and broke apart. Flavors were not vibrant. Very much on the downside. Did not finish.
