    June 11, 2020 - very nice and very 2006, saw my note from 2014 and wasn't surprised (it had words like brooding, darkish, tannin etc)... I'm finding the 2006 vintage to be more like that and less 'soft' (which is what I thought when it came out)... this also an NSG so leans that way typically... but this was very very good, after two hour decant I tasted and loved it but also thought it should have been 4-6 hours of air... enjoyable with dark fruit, brooding oak, smoke, spice with big mouthfeel... if you're looking for elegant (which I often prefer), this is not it... but nonetheless very good... and I suspect even better in 7-10 plus years

    February 23, 2020 - Beautifully perfumed on the nose with fresh, ripe strawberry and a little rhubarb. Expansive and deep. On the palate, this showed pretty tight, but well-balanced and fleshed out a little as it aired. Nice, but lacked concentration. Some overt oak was on display as well. Fairly clean - not muddled. Suggest to hold for another few years to see if this develops further and integrates the oak better. At this point, the nose delivers the goods, but the palate disappoints a bit. 89 - 91 if scoring.

    February 2, 2020 - Soft, chalky, red fruited NSG, a streak of acid giving it life - not exuberant, but there's power lurking there.
