    April 26, 2020 - Drank from split. Cork completely fell apart requiring the coffee filter trick to salvage. Very nice nose and great depth. Can't wait to see how it progresses over the next few days.

    April 24, 2020 - Concentrated, sweet, and warm stewed prunes, dark chocolate, and little hints of medicinal licorice. Flush, full, and thick, though not so rich that you can't keep sipping happily away. Heavy, but balanced. Delivers lots of alcohol "like a mainer to [your] vein" without anything alcoholic tasting here for me at all. But it's a "bludgeoning" pleasure, a wine that goes "thud" rather than darting around like a nimble little swordsman. Thoroughly enjoyed over three evenings, but of course could have stretched longer. So delicious and rich, and an experience I think I could go for pretty much any time.

    February 24, 2020 - Loved it. Gorgeous, light and very long. Super elegant at the same time being concentrated.
    Next time really need more than 2 days to follow, as I suspect it would be better on day 3

    January 28, 2020 - Not my thing. Alcohol took over completely.

    December 25, 2019 - Cork turned to dust, had to use cheese cloth to serve the wine. Felt disjointed at the moment, less enjoyable than other recent 2000 ports.
