    February 8, 2020 - PnP, thought it would be good to go right out of the gate. It was not. It took 2 hours for this wine to wake up. Initially cool dark fruit with an espresso bitterness. After two hours more red fruit (cherry) and secondary aromas and flavors, dry leaves, tobacco, roasted red pepper. The mid palate was pleasant but the finish remained short.

    December 23, 2019 - Red ruby color, no decant, mature right bank wine, not overly complex but good black fruit, mostly cherries, and currants, with earth floor, dry leaves, chocolate aromas on the nose. Palate is medium, dark fruits, some tobacco and earthy flavors, good acidity, soft tannins. Mature St. Emilion. Finish is medium. At the peak. Good buy for around $40.

    December 31, 2018 - New Year's Eve, 2019 Pokai Parera (Pokai Parera, Ekatahuna, New Zealand): The first of a brilliant flight of 2001 Bordeaux wines, this was the essence of Merlot. Leather, cedar, dark plums, feathery tannins. A warm bouquet is followed by a broad entry that becomes more intense and focused in the mid palate. This is a gentle wine (drinking perfectly now) that is complete, complex and delicious. Softly layered mid midpalate that invites another sip!
