    March 17, 2019 - Dark colour, fruitful nose of plum, violets, graphite and leather.
    At the very begining of a secondary journey, the tannins remain medium to firm but are integrating well, the acid remains fresh and clean but the flavour is fairly full with plums, berries, violet notes, graphite and a touch of leather. The finish is medium.

    July 25, 2018 - Medium garnet
    Medium+ intensity, aromas of plums, black cherry, cocoa, graphite and leather.
    firm medium+ tannins, medium+ acidity, high alcohol, full body, medium+ intensity flavours of plums, graphite and leather. Medium finish.
    Very good wine, well integrated tannins, deep concentrated fruit starting to turn to tertiary. Finish is a bit short.

    May 19, 2018 - Opened to pair with a grilled, stuffed flank steak. Typical Bordeaux nose on bottle pop. Ruby / garnet colour. Hints of cherry and pencil lead on the nose when I decanted it. After about two hours it opened up really well. Cigar box, plum, and a touch of graphite. Alas my only one...

    March 13, 2017 - Last bottle was 4 years ago. Clean and elegant nose, floral but not intense. Tannins are softer than previously, firm but no rough edges. Complex and long with slight heat at finish, characteristics of the high alcohol vintage, may never go away. Already approachable but not yet ready for prime time. Oaks still lingering on. Rich and borderline too ripe. The 18% Cabernet Franc does not stand out, mainly Merlot now. Hard work drinking this on 2nd day. Seems a bit too ripe and over-extracted with heat at backend....hmmmmm...JG probably would give this a 80 pts. lol. JR was right to score this 14.5/20.

    February 25, 2017 - Still a dark purple color. Big nose of creme de cassis and new vanilla-tinged wood. Full-bodied and rich, but still youthful and unformed, though delicious. This seems to have all the component pieces in spades, just needs a little more time to come together. Exceptionally plush with high quality tannin. Combines richness and elegance.
