    January 1, 2019 - Took an hour or so to get going but then lovely mid weight Bordeaux. Nothing fancy; just quietly satisfying.

    December 23, 2018 - Last bottle. COuldn't even drink it. Short, acetic, dead.

    December 15, 2018 - Haut Medoc Birthday lunch (Bel & Brio, Barangaroo): Bit funky, dirty, leathery, earthy, farmyard, a little black hued fruit. Juicy, blackcurrant, plums, a little alcohol heat. Front of mouth grip and a little burr on the mid palate. Hmm.

    December 3, 2018 - My third bottle of a case I bought last year. I've admired this wine and the amazing QPR since I snagged a case of the 2012 a couple of years ago. Great left bank Bordeaux for the money - classic dry pencil lead and graphite flavors, nice aromatics, and acidity and fruit have held up really well.

    October 8, 2018 - Very similar to note posted previously on 09/26. Bottle variation as the fruit was just slightly faded.

    (Chateau Lanessan) Good stuff. Cheap B2K, hands down, are the best values for Cabernet based wines in the marketplace today. I could not believe how rich, sophisticated and complex this wine was for all of $15.99 a bottle. Astounding. Nose of cassis, red cherry skins, cocoa powder, minerals, earth, redcurrants. Gorgeous high-toned nose. Bright, juicy, ripe & rich on the palate with red cherry, cassis and great mineral complexity on the finish. Does not hit you over the head with its' power but this is an elegant gorgeously delineated wine with surprising complexity. This will age too.
