    October 3, 2022 - At its peak, rally enjoyable for the next 3 years for sure.

    September 11, 2022 - Really very good. Decanted 4 hours which was sufficient. Lovely long finish! Excellent QPR at $43 per bottle. Still slightly on the young side and will be at its best in 3-5 years.

    July 17, 2022 - Two hour decant through rabbit. The best bottle of this I have had so far. Tannins really beginning to relax. Nice warm fruits. Plenty to like here, but also a slightly boiled jam taste which detracts slightly. Drinking now and for some years to come.

    May 27, 2022 - My first sample of the lauded 2009 vintage. On the nose there’s a strong aroma of terroir. Including cigar box and tobacco. Layers of red fruit. Love the complex smell all balanced together. On the palette, it’s still slightly tannic echoing that wonderful terroir. Unmistakably bordeaux which I love. The finish is good and lasts close to a minute. I can’t wait to taste others from this year. Great start and looking forward to many more in the future.

    May 20, 2022 - I have enjoyed this wine in the past. This particular bottle was not unpleasant, but it was not as enjoyable as its siblings have been. It seemed to have shut down
    The next day it started to open but only a bit.
    I look forward to my remaining bottles.
