    September 14, 2022 - Allowed this to decant for a couple hours. Based upon a sample after popping the cork, this was the right decision. Earthy, tabacco-like nose. Smooth wine, with the Cherry/Plum/Dark Berry flavor struggling to appear. Got more fruit after the decant. Pleasant finish. Interesting wine I had in my cellar since 2012. I was pleasantly surprised!

    June 2, 2021 - This wine is from the stable that believes the more concentrated the wine, the better it is.

    It's undoubtedly full of flavor, but it's so intense that there's no room for any subtleties or charm. I'd find it hard to drink much more than a glass of it - perhaps in time it will mellow out, but for now it is too much for me.

    May 14, 2020 - Ditto my previous review. Excellent. A baby Lynch Bages. Decant this wine! Still rich and soulful even with the sediment left back in bottle. Saddle leather, underbrush and broken branches, mushroom, a bit of a petrol-type thing, and just a touch of underarm. At or just before peak. Also tastes a lot like one of my other favorite off the beaten path Bordeaux— Caronne Ste Ghemme

    December 15, 2019 - Winefield's, Pre-sale tasting: Perfect deep and sound colour, black fruit in the dry bouquet, a firm taste and lots of eatable tannins. In its adolescence, so give it a few years to blossom fully.
