    January 6, 2021 - A wonderful Mendoza Cab Sauv and Malbec blend with great age produced only in outstanding vintage years. Blackberry, blueberry, cassis, cedar along with wet leaves and forest floor. Tannins smooth and integrated, still strong acidity, great finish. Still has some years to go but not going to get any better.

    August 29, 2020 - Mild but clear notion of cork, not rated, most poured out

    March 29, 2020 - Better than the first of the 3 bottles I bought of this fantastic 70% Cab Sauv and 30% Malbec and only produced in outstanding vintage years. Like a soup that has been simmering for hours all the flavors and tannins meld together into a flavorful broth of tannins, acidity, and flavors. Paired perfectly with a 15 hour slow cooked, Mesquite smoked, Texas brisket. One of my auction wine purchases.

    December 21, 2019 - Arômes floraux et végétaux...ainsi que des notes de cacao, d'épices et de bacon. Un vin gras et ample aux fruits noirs...bleuet. Minéral...calcaire. Charpenté et complexe. Long finale souple. Saveurs de fruits mûrs...vanillées après quelque temps. Incertain quand à son évolution possible...

    December 13, 2019 - 1 of 3 bottles I purchased. 70% Cab Sauv and 30% Merlot. Rich ripe dark berries on the nose. Big and bold but smooth and well integrated with it's age. Blackberry, black cherry, chocolate, tobacco on the palate. Nice to have 2 more bottles but I'll likely drink them sooner than later as I don't think this wine has much more time in it's prime drinking window.
