    June 18, 2021 - Enjoyed with good friends at Barbatella in Naples alongside a 2007 Philip Togni. Three hour decant and wines continued to improve all night. Both wines were spectacular and group was split regarding favorite. I enjoyed the Dominus slightly better. Bordeaux like nose, dark cherry, vanilla, and a bit of smoke. Beautiful mouth feel and in an idealic drinking window. Couldn’t believe how youthful the fruit was while exhibiting perfect harmony. Both wines have the backbone to age gracefully for many years to come but would absolutely recommend opening up either bottle today for an amazing experience. These are the types of wines that remind me why I collect!

    June 13, 2021 - Have 3 of these in the cellar from an Auction purchase, so decided to check in on them.

    While this is slightly behind the '07 I had last year, the '06 is holding its own and in a great place right now. While you'll have to search a bit for the darker fruit notes, this comes across as classic Left Bank Bordeaux, reminiscent of some of my faves from the region. Cigar box, leather, cedar with just enough fruit, this could be difficult to pick out if not for the fruit, which would probably be the give-away. Tannins are there and well integrated, this can easily go another 5+ years. Decanted 3 hours on day 1, and held up just as well on day 2. Enjoy!
