    November 27, 2020 - Opened on Thanksgiving weekend with friends. Lovely wine.
    Not decanted but did not really need it.
    My feeling is the wine is on it's sweet spot and no need to hold.
    Complex, aromatic, fine chewy tannins, long finish.
    Grab one on a good deal.
    Cheers

    November 20, 2020 - This bottle was drinkable but clearly over the hill. Didnt quite enjoy as much as the earlier bottles.

    November 14, 2020 - Still drinking well. Decanted two hours in advance. Rich blackberry and cherry fruit flavors with plenty of grip and yet a still velvety mouthfeel. Slightly bitter on the finish, but not enough to detract from overall enjoyment.

    October 17, 2020 - Followed nicely mature bottles of Les Pavots and Au Sommet. Held its own against two great wines. Highly recommended.

    July 31, 2020 - Perfect cork this time. PnP is as good as if not better than the previous bottle. Will see how it holds up on day 2 before purchasing more. Like this style of wine and think this is a good value vs. the higher end Hall wines.
