    August 17, 2021 - Had a few 06s recently and this topped the pack. Good secondary nose of better than average perfume. Still dark but softened palate of robust deep fruit and pretty spice. For my taste drinking well now.

    March 17, 2021 - Opened 6 hours before drinking and slow oxed. Really wonderful nose of black cherry, strawberry and sousbois in the rain. On the palate rather harsh at first, suffers from that 2006 thing of bitter tannins. But lots of fruit and overall still primary. I’m just not sure about these 2006s and how they will age - if the fruit fades bad the tannins persist they won’t be pleasant.

    October 31, 2020 - A bitter-sweet experience: the nose is such a promise, powerful, complex; there's ripe dark fruit, sous-bois and some headiness, maybe a touch of VA. A sip reveals the snag: harsh, drying tannins. Yet another illustration that 2006 has produced quite hard wines that, if not enjoyed young, have a hard time coming around (if ever). Very long though. A pity. Will time heal some of this? I'll make a last attempt in five years.

    August 2, 2020 - Drying out. Well past it’s prime. Cherries, smoke, and earthy flavors. Short mid palate. Give it a vigorous decant and let it breathe for an hour. Perfect for Burgers ‘n Burgundy. Drink up now.

    May 6, 2019 - This is drying out. It is a bit astringent, short on fruit. I’m not sure it ever had much but it certainly won’t improve with more time. Smooth, as the tannins have melded, but not particularly enjoyable.
