    March 5, 2022 - Dense nose of mature red fruit, cedar, plum, graphite and mentol. Medium to full bodied, perfectly balanced and silky, with ripe berries, cedar, earthy notes, plum, tobacco, mentholic notes and ligh toast. A real treat and at its very top now, but possibly staying there for annother 3-5 years.

    February 19, 2022 - A wonderful bottle of this last night, confirming my opinion that this is best vintage of Sociando post-1990. Rich, smooth, mature but still vigorous and layered. Showing a strong earthy minerality infused with black truffles, walnuts and cedar, quite divine. While still a more rustic, sauvage style of claret, this has an almost chocolatey richness to balance all the structure and brightness. I could see this drinking well for another 15-20 years easily, but ready today. Great stuff.

    January 15, 2022 - In a wonderful spot right now. Loads of red and black fruits with great finish. Tannins still present. I think it still has some time.

    October 18, 2021 - Bricky garnet. Nose of cassis, currant, blackberry, cedar, earth. Layers of integrated and mildly autumnal black currant, plum, cassis, tobacco, and green leaf on the tongue. Moderate acidity and resolved tannin. Longer finish of earthy dark plum fruit and a sigh of earth and green. Last half bottle of this, consumed in Holbrook, AZ.
