    December 4, 2021 - Blackcurrant, nutty, chocolate. Darker and bigger but without losing the nuance. Pronounced flavour intensity and long finish. Powerful and focused. Outstanding wine!
    Detailed full tasting experience in 96 vintage.

    September 5, 2021 - Yvelin's birthday; 9/5/2021-9/6/2021: Very green on both the nose and palate, dissipated slightly on the palate over time to give a well-integrated wine with impeccable balance underneath. Very good quality but I could not get past the herbaceous quality that I don't mind usually. No other notes point to this though so possibly a flawed bottle?

    September 5, 2021 - It had a horrible amount of green-ness and Brett on opening. It took about 1 hr in the decanter to open up and to provide classic Cabernet flavors that took me straight to the left bank. It had an impeccable balance on the palate but unfortunately went a bit flat after another 50-60mins after opening up. It was amazing for about 30 mins. This would be my WOTN if it could only hold on to its peak longer. This is an issue I have experienced with wines from wetter vintages. 95 points at peak but overall 90 points.

    February 28, 2021 - Had last night at a friends place. Wonderful earthy nose and palate taste with pencil shavings, earth and dark fruit. Medium body. Wonderful balance, complexity and finish.
