    January 3, 2020 - This was great. Actually had a fuller richer body the second day. Sour cherry and a bit of tobacco on day one. Second day added chocolate and coffee notes and really fleshed out. Amazing when a wine does that. That’s the hard part for me about older wine. Some that I’ve finished on the first day, I wondered if they wouldn’t have been more impressive the next. This was coming off a disappointing showing of a left bank star from 2000 that was blah for four days.

    A very impressive showing.

    March 17, 2016 - Drank over two nights with maybe a half point improvement overnight. Nice enough nose, but the palate is tannin, muted and heavy dark fruit, and more tannin. I'm surprised at the scores on here, but that happens for me with Bordeaux sometimes...And who is this guy "Gary Vaynerchuk" referenced on the back label?

    December 29, 2015 - No formal notes, but this wine was incredibly ripe and modern. The alcohol poked its way in but wasn't awful. Mainly we disliked the strength of the darkly completed fruit with no additional depth or interest. A one trick pony. We didn't mind this wine, but it's a background drinker, not something to sit with and contemplate. Disappointing for the cost of entry. I doubt my remaining bottles are going to age favorably.

    December 5, 2015 - Annual Christmas Wine Dinner and Cellar Raid (Naperville, IL): Didn't take detailed notes. Part of Christmas wine dinner and cellar raid. This one needed more time than what we gave it to open up. Good fruit, tannic. #3 of the Merlot's but went back to this after a few hours and it was more open and complex

    March 8, 2015 - This takes a while to open (about 3 hours) but then there's a decent display of plum, fig, black currant subtle earth, palate is medium bodied with lots of slightly bitter tannin but slowly subsides into an array of dark chocolate, thyme, plum and dirt
