    October 6, 2021 - No detailed notes. This is drinking at peak I feel and will probably be there for a few more years at least. Was fantastic with a big hunk of steak.

    August 13, 2021 - Wow. One of my favorites. Beautiful nose of bright red fruit right out of the bottle, deep ruby color and legs for days. Flavor of dark red cherries and red fruits with a persistence in the finish the goes on and on. Might even be better than the 2001. This is a home run right now. Don’t wait, but I don’t think you have to rush either. This is a stunner.

    May 31, 2021 - Decanted for 30 minutes. Nose of violets, black cherry, currant, cedar, vanilla and spice. Black and red fruit, cedar and spice on the palate. Long, balanced finish. Very pure with a Bordeaux style. Medium to full bodied. Drinking beautifully, but no rush. Served with reverse seared strip steaks and a blue cheese, black truffle butter.

    April 14, 2021 - Also similar notes to mflesh, this drank beautifully, tannins are all resolved, but the fruit stayed behind to tickle the pallet. Fully integrated, I don't think this could get any better from here, drinking perfectly. Outstanding wine went perfectly with my t-bone.
