    September 28, 2019 - This was a check in on the 2007 vintage. The 07 is still very youthful and fresh. It will be another 5 years until I open another. However, it was nicely polished and perfect to close out our main course.

    The body is full, lush & thick. The tannins still pronounced, round but, firm, meaty and nicely tarry. The structure & tension say this wine will last another 15-20 years properly stored. The length & balance show the excellent craft of this producer and the quality of the 2007 vintage in Napa.

    It showed; very dark currants, heavily extracted. blackberries, black raspberries, black plum with skin, sweet dark tarriness, lots used dark expresso grounds, some graphite, fresh tobacco, pleasant woodiness, crushed dry rocks, limestone minerals, alluvial soils, nicely layered baking spices, some mid dark spice, incense, light herbs and fresh, dark, red, purple florals. The acidity is round and nicely executed. The long, still big, ruby, lush finish is really beautiful. However, I forward to what the 07 down the road. It will improve and will be worth the wait.

    September 23, 2019 - Quite underwhelming - might have been stored poorly. Got it from the K&L library section. Was overly acidic - felt a bit hot. The age hadn't done anything for it.

    July 28, 2019 - Un gros vin mais tout de même très équilibré. Tout le monde a callé Bordeaux dans une dégustation à l'aveugle.

    April 20, 2019 - Clear deep purple color. Clean nose of medium plus intensity with aromas of black currant, flint, pencil led, toast, prunes, leather and mushrooms. Wine is fully developed. On the palate it is dry with medium acidity, medium silky tannins, high alcohol, medium plus body medium plus flavor intensity of dried raisins, wet stone, bitter chocolate and cured meat. The finish is medium plus. Very good wine, drink now it is at its peak. Can be aged further but I doubt that it will get much better than it is now

    March 9, 2019 - Nice, smooth, medium/full bodied wine, will even improve over a few more years.
