    March 22, 2018 - Yes! This is an aromatic beauty, with hints of tobacco, liquorice, leather, red berries, blueberries, bramble, raspberries and vanilla. Charred cedar and plum too, with a hint of earth. On the palate it has medium acidity and well balanced with the medium + tannins. These tannins are evolved, soft and silky. Long finish, medium + body and medium alcohol. Wow all those flavours are still taste in here, pronounced. Amazing!

    September 26, 2017 - For a wine this young, this is really drinking quite nicely and is completely approachable. I actually expected the oak to be more dominant, but it didn't stick out much. The fruit was big, ripe, and in the forefront. The plum and blueberry was so incredibly ripe and juicy, along with fresh herbs, violets, anise, spice, and espresso. Full-bodied, powerful, and with good tannin integration. The tannic structure is obvious, but it's just so well-balanced. Medium level of acidity and freshness. The finish was long and full of fruit. I did detect a touch of heat as well. Overall, this young wine held its own, even in the face of a number of fully mature and charming wines.

    September 4, 2017 - My personal fav of the day of the 9 years we had to suffer through.....intense fruit on the nose, concentrated like a Cali red blend as far as bright, juicy fruit but no jam whatsoever, just powerful bright red fruit. Strong red currant and cassis, eloquent tannins and a verrrry elongated and classy finish. Just a superb wine for anyone who appreciates the profile of a classy Cali red in their Bordeaux!.

    (Château Angélus (St Emilion)) A really open and slightly exotic nose here, the fruit showing plum, damson and black cherry character alongside a sense of warm, open richness in keeping with the vintage. Other aromas are more redolent of spices, but these aspects are more oak-derived. Very evocative and softly defined, aromatically at least. The palate is like cream, soft, enveloping, textured, gentle and it seems restrained. But this is the paradox of 2009, because underneath this soft and velvety texture there is tannin and acidity in appropriate amounts. This is convincing, the structure very well hidden, the dark-skinned fruit very correct, and there is acidity here as well, albeit well hidden at present. The finish is long, tannic and grippy. Really super wine.
