    November 25, 2022 - 2 hour slow ox, but it was just as good when sampled as a PnP. Near silky smooth. Overripe red fruits, dried herbs, touch of spice. Elegant and perfectly balanced. This bottle was within its last year or two of its ideal drinking window.

    November 17, 2022 - 30 minute decant. Dark garnet color; raisiny nose.
    This one is full of derp, dark fruit, accompanied by tons of savory notes: tobacco, roast meat, and mushroom predominant. The flavor profile is slightly overripe, even after two decades in the bottle. It’s delicious and was worth the wait.

    October 9, 2022 - Clear ruby in color with a little garnet on edges. Notes of cooked prunes and leather. Med acidity, med body, elegant tannins and med finish. Beautiful wine but would say it is at or just past it’s peak. Paired perfectly with lamb.

    September 30, 2022 - Just a stunner of a wine. One of the best friend I’ve ever had especially as a magnum really shine bright it’s power. Some tobacco and earth long finish. Just fantastic
