    August 4, 2020 - During a Bdx2000 tasting. Expressive and ripe nose with dark fruit, plummy and bakery scents. On the palate this is lush and ripe, almost a bit new worldish, but not overdone. Medium finish.

    June 1, 2020 - Modest leathery nose. Initially a bit bandaid but opened up nicely. Well balanced with residual tannin an fruit. Clearly a great wine but drink soon.

    May 2, 2020 - Allowed 3 hours for aeration and then followed with decanting. Still showing very well in my opinion. Nose lacking just a little but still very smooth drinking and enjoyable. Time to drink up whatever you have available.

    March 6, 2020 - Decanted 3 hours. Nice nose. The palate is dark cherry note. Light acidity. Tannins fading but still smooth and well balanced. Not the best bottle of this. It just go down from the top. But still show some complexity.

    September 21, 2019 - Decanted for 4 hours, this wine is glorious. Nice soft tannins that envelops your whole mouth in a good sort of way, without hanging on to long. Soft fruit. Less fruit on the nose after 4 hrs as compared to when opened. Loving this wine right now. Bumped up a point from my last review.

    September 8, 2019 - So smooth and in the perfect place right now. Plums and berries, intense aromas, very smooth tannins, long finish. Delicious.

    August 18, 2019 - My first reaction to this was that the tannins were overpowering and a bit harsh. This was after a 1 hr decant. After 3 hours it lightened up a lot, and after 4 hrs it really was singing. Let this one breathe before diving in! My initial score was going to be an 87 based on the imbalance but after it opened up, it's a firm 92

    February 27, 2019 - Very nice, suave and no weakness. A lush, generous wine still in the making for a wonderful future. I believe this would be at its best in about 5~6 years. In my humble opinion, but already so inviting indeed! Cheers,

    February 9, 2019 - A beast(beautiful one to be) still in its youth. Brooding aromas of deep earth with plenty of red and dark berries overflowing into the nose. Unmistakably Bordeaux right bank,Texture is for me plenty thick though not overly and no question this is a lush, inviting and deep, profound wine. Still so young, not quite open yet and perhaps will peak to go into the secondary stage in about 4 or 5 years, or at least the bottle that we had tonight showed this direction. This reminds of a person who is very calm, introvert, profoundly gentle and patiently waiting his/her time of shining, knowing it will be coming soon.
    Cheers,
