    October 9, 2021 - This wine is so close to perfection, I wonder why I don't just give it 100 points. Lots of wow factors here with great mouthfeel, great aftertaste, great body and presence. Decanted for about 1.5 hours. What a great wine!

    September 16, 2021 - First night, it was a big disappointment. Opened 3 hours and never blossomed. Second night it improved to 93.
    But far less than I was expecting for

    September 1, 2021 - Decanted over cocktails. Beautifully aged wine with well-integrated acid and firm tannins with a note of pure cassis that became more pronounced with air. I would recommend a two-hour decant to open this up and get the full experience as the palate was a bit muted and the finish abrupt initially.
