    December 20, 2020 - dark red, brick rim - intense nose of blackberries and plumbs, with a nice touch of oak - same intense fruit in the mouth with high acid and mature integrated tannins - excellent overall balance - long 15-20 sec finish - drinking beautifully now, but will easily last another 5-10 years - tasted alongside the 2007 Catena Zapata Nicasia, which was less developed and more acidic, but both were great with food (grilled pork tenderloins)

    August 30, 2020 - Nose: Complex aromas of blackberries, plum, oak, espresso beans, well developed
    Mouth: Dry, high acid, smooth texture, full body and high alcohol, high contcentration of fruit and medium + length.
    Conclusion: I love the integrated tannins and the distinct conentration of fruit in the mouth with out being overpowering like a big Cali CS. Its elegant. Needs 2 hours of decanting. Prior to that the acid was too dominant overpowering the fruit and tannins. After decanting all components felt more well integrated resulting in a smooth texture. With ample of acid and fruit this wine will evolve over the next 10 years.

    August 29, 2020 - Nez ouvert d'écurie, de selle de cheval, d'épices, d'encre, de cassis et de caoutchouc. Un vin fruité aux tannins fins mais encore bien musclé, charpenté, aux saveurs florales et de cassis...style bordelais. Longue finale. Encore du solide pour plusieurs années...prochaine bouteille : 2022 à 2027. 93+

    July 26, 2020 - First bottle from a case bought several years back. Poured into decanter and drank over an hour or so. Nice and fairly complex nose of dark fruit, soil, animal notes. On the palate ripe dark fruit, a touch of tar, eucalyptus, balanced however by good acidity. 14% alcohol not noticeable. Not unlike the (hot) 07 vintage of BdM in style. Medium (-) tannins. Fairly short finish.
    A good Cab but for me lacks ultimately a bit mid-palate concentration and depth for a higher score. Will easily last at this level for another 5-10 years.

    PS: Enjoyed rest of bottle more on day 2, increased score from 91 to 93. Drink with a 60 min decant or hold for another 2-3 years.

    June 13, 2020 - Cabernet Bordeaux Vergleich:
    - 2008 Kirwan: Noch sehr jung. Komplex. Sehr lang. Noch etwas ruppig.
    - 2008 Grand-Puy Lacoste: Dagegen etwas flach. Süppig. Schön zu trinken. Aber einfach.
    - 2007 Catena Zapata: Fruchtig. Starke Säure. Lang, aber sehr Mineralität.
    - 2010 Nenin: Toll. Jetzt schön zu trinken. Lang. Komplex. Sehr anderer Stil als Kirwan.
    - Für mich sind Kirwan und Nenin die Sieger des Abends.
