    July 5, 2019 - Popped and poured. This is a lighter ruby-red wine in the glass, one with notes of rosemary, cherry, black licorice, and bay leaf on the nose. In the mouth, the wine is mid-weight, with some red fruit and stony / mineral elements. The finish is plush yet slightly chewy. Overall, this is a good bottle of this wine. It has classic CdP notes. It is probably time to drink up. 91 points.

    May 5, 2019 - Very good with nice balance. herb and dark red fruit on the nose, savory palate with good fruit and some developing tertiary notes that give a savory characteristic. Clean finish. Doubt this has much upside with age, drink up.

    May 3, 2019 - consistent with notes of 8/31/2013 - this feels like it is at the end of it's peak drinking window, however.

    May 2, 2019 - Lovely nose, menthol & fruits but a background of capsicum, full bodied but balanced, drank blind but easy to guess that it was a Cdp with age, loved this VT, in a good spot

    April 23, 2019 - Based on prior comments, don't know whether this is waning or result of bottle variation, because it was rather thin with the fruit rather muted. Seemed in balance, but no complexity. Drinkable, but not memorable.
