    July 7, 2019 - Still rich and multi layered with a great deal to offer, but showing signs of age. Time to drink up!

    October 7, 2017 - Regular dinner group (By JvT @ Fitzgerald): Beautiful bouquet with sweet spices and chocolate. On the palate sweet spices, a lot of chocolate, soft acidity and buttery soft tannin. Fully mature and still delicious.

    March 1, 2017 - Decanted 3.5 hours prior to serving. Inky purple in color. Nice fruity bouquet. I was stunned by how good this still was after 22 years. Drank alongside a 1996 Clinet (primarily merlot). As good as the Clinet was, I actually enjoyed this much more. Very lush with nice fruit, plums,blueberries, black raspberries. It simply felt elegant to me. I wish I had another bottle to drink soon.
