    May 13, 2019 - Nice medium bodied. Green pepper and tobacco on the nose.
    Long finish. Lacks a little "weight".

    April 27, 2019 - Showing well. Maybe a bit young and tannic. A strong pauillac.

    April 13, 2019 - Stunning young pauillac. Tobacco, green bell paper, pencil lead interlaced with the red and dark fruit nose. Savory notes balance the fruit. Good acidity and a long long finish. This is really terrific.

    March 25, 2019 - Monthly Men's Wine Dinner (2120 Restaurant, Seattle): Decanted and served. I don't know when and if the millennial vintage of Bordeaux is going to mature but this tasted like a 2011 with light, youthful body, herbs, and a little leather. I have been surprised by the few 2000 Medocs I've opened over the last few years. They are evolving very, very slowly. My #4 of 5 and the group's #3.

    March 23, 2019 - Nothing to add to my repvious note on this one, other than to add - I LOVE IT! Shows LB can be there with the very best Paulliac when it has a good year and the required time in bottle.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Lynch Bages) This was very very closed on the nose. I actually didn't smell anything. I swirled and swirled but could not really coax anything. It was the end of the bottle too. The palate was tight but I got more out of that than the nose. Somewhat fleshy with dark concentrated fruit, nice acids and some pretty clamby tannins. The fruit though extended on the finish. It was sweet, classy and very nice. Do not open for at least five years.

    (Lynch Bages) This was completely closed down. Hint of earth and mineral on the pretty ungiving nose. Dense and ripe with great fruit. Long, long, long but also tannic, tannic, tannic. Incredible underlying material but very tough to taste today.
