    March 20, 2019 - Dark ruby, dried cherry, red plum, black currant, tart, mushroom, potpourri, floral, cedar, herbs, forest, moss, bell pepper, char, saline, lean, earthy. Medium plus acid, medium alcohol, medium body, medium tannin, high level of complexity, long finish, needs time. Will still improve over the next 10 years.

    March 2, 2019 - Bardot Brasserie Léoville Las Cases Vertical Dinner (Las Vegas, NV): From a bottle purchased upon release and pristinely cellared, this 19-year-old wine (a blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc and 9% Merlot) remains a youthful opaque ruby in color. Oozing with black currants, Bing cherries, pencil shavings, exotic spices, dark chocolate, hazelnuts and tobacco, it is fresh, full-bodied and seamlessly alcoholic (13%). Fleshy and layered, it wraps its flavors with big sweet tannins and a judicious amount of oak. Dense on the mid-palate and very long on the back end, this vintage of Léoville Las Cases continues to flirt with perfection (which may be achieved with additional time in the cellar). Drink 2025-2055.

    February 23, 2019 - Very drinkable now but still very young. Long finish, great mouth feel, very elegant wine.

    January 27, 2019 - Deep purple color with a faint herbal bouquet and flavor. Profile dominated by tannins and acidity with no nuance or depth and no finish. Very disappointing. The first bottle was better. Other tasters rated this wine quite highly. The bottle went through Hurricane Katrina, which may account for the difference, but I have many other wines that were Katrina wines and came through unscathed. I have decided not to rate it.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Leoville-Las Cases) Dark almost mauve-like color. Dark, somber nose. I don't know , desert night came to mind. Dark fruits. Little game. Minerality. You could tell there was amazing material here. Just a behemoth on the palate and an endless red fruit cascade on the finish. Perfect delineation. Perfect balance. Endless fruit
