    June 18, 2022 - From magnum. Stood up for a few hours before popping. Deep garnet in color, no bricking. Nose is of black fruit, especially cassis along with cigar box, ashtray and hints of sweet spice. It smells younger than I'd expect. On the palate, it is dry, with medium acidity, great density and extraction, rounded tannins, silky texture and long finish. You can taste the pedigree in this lovely bottle. A+

    January 2, 2022 - Opened 4 hours, decanted 1.5 hrs.

    No rush on this one. A really nice classic claret. Nose is somewhat two-noted, pyrazine and black fruit, but the palate is both intense and complex, with the blackcurrant, slight tart blackberry, leafy notes following through, and adding leather, graphite, cedar spice, and drying earth. The structure is still impressive with medium+ acidity, and tannins which are not yet resolved, but ripe enough and fine-grained. The finish was really lengthy but mainly on acidity and leafiness.

    October 30, 2021 - In good shape, but a little bit muted on both acid and fruit. It drank well, but was maybe a little bit over ideal conditions. Will try to others fairly soon.
