    October 21, 2019 - Fourth bottle opened of six purchased over a decade ago, and each has disappointed. No fruit, parched tannins, astringent finish--every damned one of them. Other reports here indicate I'm not alone in this finding, yet some people have had good bottles. But after four baddies it's safe to presume mine came from a bad lot and the 'to do' at this point is feed them to the rhododendrons.

    September 30, 2019 - On the nose secondary aromas of olive tapenade & cedar shavings. On the palate spicy white pepper. The wine was quite tannic & astringent - too much for me. No fruit to speak of. Acid was M+ but everything was overwhelmed by the tannins for me. Plenty of life left in this wine - did not seem to be in decline at all.

    September 20, 2019 - Beautiful bouquet with barnyard and oak. On the palate beautiful and lush dark berries, oak, smoke and tobacco and beautifully round tannin. Completely ready now, but no extreme hurry.

    September 15, 2019 - Smooth and fresh, was open after 1 hr decant. No long tannins but wine came together nicely. No bricking, but it seems this wine may only have a couple years left in the bottle before declining.

    August 22, 2019 - Nose of cedar, cigar box, and barnyard, more of the same on the palate, medium/big body, tasty, mouth filling, easy to sip and savor with Roast Beef, barnyard dominant, time to enjoy is now-at peak, and a long, barnyard finish.

    (Chateau Lascombes) This had a gorgeous nose of violets, red currants, spicey oak and dark cassis. Lush palate that really surpised me as to how accessible this was. Loads of bright tiny-berried dark fruits with nice minerality and seamless integration. Great finesse. Long finish. I had this out of a .375 so that maybe is why it is a touch advanced. Beautiful wine.
