    June 28, 2019 - Similar in profile to the 5/21/09 bottle except for a slight degree of oxidation in the mid-palate.

    June 3, 2018 - Very French nose and initial palate, it didn’t showed it’s age which make me believe it can still live another 5+ years. Decanted for 30 min and drank over 2 hours.

    This is not at prime but it’s enjoyable and delicate wine.

    April 8, 2018 - Pop and pour. Surprisingly good for the vintage with plenty of sweet red fruit still shining through. Secondary notes are also there with leathery red fruit, cherry chapstick, and cedar all around. Has a few more years to go but definitely at/past peak.

    April 1, 2018 - I did not enjoy this as much as I have enjoyed other vintages. This felt similar to the '96 and is made in a style that is a bit too hot and extracted. It lacks the balance of the better vintages. Certainly not tired or near over the hill, but I don't know that this will be much better in another 5-6 years.

but the wine was still good: artichoke with garlic-lemon mayo, Not the best pairing, then roasted arctic char with asparagus (did well with the fish).
