    September 11, 2020 - A bit young still but good gripping bordeaux

    March 27, 2020 - Last of 6 bottles. Consistent with previous notes that the flavors were very nice, the tannins subsided over the years, and the finish lacked depth and remained very light. Good wine for the price.

    February 14, 2020 - PnP with 45 minute ox in glasses. A ton of smoky notes, earth, tar and black fruits on the complex nose. Medium-bodied with some cedar, lots of black fruits and moca on a frame of somewhat sweet black fruits. Nicely balanced medium finish with moderate tannins and fresh acidity. several blind tasters thought this was northern Rhone. Others were sure it was a Right Bank BDX (the 40% Merlot was very pronounced). Arguably at its peak now - but well stored bottles should last another 5-10 years. 90+

    February 8, 2020 - Drinking beautifully. Textbook left bank aromas and flavours, backed up by refined, structured, and supple Bordeaux flavour and structure. Really beautiful balance. Not outstandingly complex, but the overall effect is one of poise.

    February 5, 2020 - From magnum. Earthy, well-balanced, some attractive dark, earthy fruit. Pretty good for the vintage and great value. Held up well on the 2nd day.
