    August 17, 2019 - Classic middle-aged-Bordeaux nose; graphite, blackcurrant, a hint of leather and cigar box. Very inviting. Smooth in the mouth. Rich and dark. Some grip on the medium-length finish, but the tannins have mostly melted away. The real up-front fruit has gone too, but there isn't a great deal of obvious development in terms of aged characters. Sitting on the plateau at the moment with years of life left. Most enjoyable.

    June 9, 2019 - Second Sunday Group: Geja's Cafe format (Marty's): Dark fruit, currant and earth notes. Medium-bodied with softened tannins and flavors of dark fruit, chocolate and plum. Drinking very well. 92+ pts.

    April 16, 2019 - Decanted 5 hours ahead. Still youthful, but approachable now.

    December 12, 2018 - Wine had a very nice aroma and showed nicely on the palette after some time in the glass [about an hour].

    March 16, 2018 - Improved from last time we had it. Good red fruit -- cherries and currants -- with smoke, tobacco and a little earth. I don't find this as mature as some do. Perhaps it will drink a little better with some more time?
