    October 12, 2021 - Blind tasting. No formal notes taken. With its deep colour and lack of bricking I wrongly guessed a Right Bank. Big surprise to see a Medoc! It carries a royal punch with plenty of deep dark forest berry and cherry. A stunning wine, smooth at the same time and has a light deposit fall-out. Delicious and in its prime.

    August 22, 2021 - Decanted shortly before tasting. Nice nose, red and black berries, black cherries. Medium bodied, good mouth feel. A quite pleasant if not especially long finish, still a little tannic bite.

    This is a fine wine that I suspect will be better in a year or three, but is enjoyable to drink now.

    August 19, 2021 - Summer of 2021 Cornucopia of Wines (Dogwood Grove, Garezers, HHI): A pretty classic Bordeaux, showing red plum, cedar, and berries on a stony edge. Elegant and charming with a long finish. This is the sort of wine that shines best when it is on its own and not served as part of a broader lineup of wines. Next to a Rhone or a California cab, it tends to get shy and unfairly outshined, which is what maybe happened to it at a summer party where I popped it. But that's okay, more for me to sip.

    July 23, 2021 - Short half bottle decant. Nose of violets, forest floor. Plum, red and black fruits. Silky, medium weight with fine, integrated tannins. A bit lightweight mid-palate, but very smooth with a long finish. Paired well with meat loaf.
