    July 4, 2019 - Decanted and drunk fairly soon thereafter with BBQ ribs. Young looking, medium to dark garnet. Nose is pretty vanilla and dark fruited with some spice. Pretty rich texture with a chewy dark fruit palate with a spiced undertone and medium long finish. Probably still evolving and not near peak. Still quite nice with the food.

    March 10, 2019 - Still a vivid purple color. Youthful nose of creme de cassis, blackberry jam new wood, cigar and spice box. Medium-full bodied and seamless. What a beautiful texture! Absolutely elegant in every aspect, this is perfectly balanced with flavors of red and black fruits, spicy new wood and just starting to show the barest hint of early maturity. Drink now-2029 95

    December 25, 2018 - Really drinking well now. 45 minute decant provided clean red fruit with minimal tannins. Time to-drink this baby.

    June 2, 2018 - Winebar [4 Whites, 8 Reds, & 2 *shared* VERY spectacular bottles] from 06/01/18] (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Dr. Tom, this was *fabulous*! You're TOO much, you know! :)

    65% C.S. & 35% Malbec 50% ea barrel & bin fermented @ low temps, aged 24 mos in 100% new FR oak; 14.0% ABV, 5.8 grams/liter T.A., & 3.72 pH; 4,500 cs made, per WS.

    N: GORGEOUS smoke, berries, rest tough to parse

    P: MF, poss Med, body; LOVELY, ALMOST swtish frt met by balancing acidity which slowly, SEAMLESSLY transitions into a very LONG, impeccably BALANCED finish with NOTHING out of place/standing out! Drink NOW for its perfection, but I can SEE holding it for several more. They don't get MUCH better than this! My EXCEPTIONAL! 98 pts WA, 94 WE @ $120, 93+ Tanzer, & 92 WS.
