    June 10, 2022 - Well this is just a home run from the start.. Full bodied and well rounded, tastes of cooked dark berries, muted chocolate, leather and slight oak. smooth as silk. Truly a legend!

    April 28, 2022 - Mostly Domestic Wine Dinner (The Capital Grille at Tysons corner, VA): Expressive nose displaying ripe concentrated black fruit, blackberry, blackberry pie, a hint of plum, dark chocolate, dark flowers, a hint of green, dark spices and crushed rocks. Excellent concentration, very finely layered concentrated black fruit, silky and fluid, perfect amount of acidity and mineral, very fine tannins and a seamless long ripe concentrated black fruit driven finish with dark chocolate and mineral at the end. This is starting to reach the early drinking windows. I am hoping that it will drink like the 90 five to ten years ago. Not the most complex but really hedonistic wine.

    September 5, 2021 - Plum and blueberry nose. Prune plum and blackberry on the palate with soft tannins, sufficient acidity and lengthy finish. Merlot influence is dominant.

    June 20, 2021 - although I generally don't drink Bordeaux younger than 20 years, I wanted to see how this wnie was developing given the reported drinking window from 2012-2020 - very nice nose of ripe plumbs and cassis - full body of ripe merlot fruit - medium 15-20 second finish - drinking very nicely now, but no way the drinking window is finished at 2020- give it another 3-5 years to fully develop the complexity that underlies the abundant fruit in this wine

    April 3, 2021 - Silky, velvety bordeaux with great purity of fruit and no hard edges. Lots of berries with some flowers and spice. This wine was great on pnp, double decanted, and left in opened bottle for 4 hours. improved throughout the night and is definitely worth opening if you have multiple bottles.
