    January 24, 2020 - Ein Freund von mir machte mich auf seine schlechten Erfahrungen mit diesem Wein aufmerksam, da bereits oxidiert. Also habe ich eine aufgerissen und war erst erleichtert, als nach einer Stunde in der Karaffe der Wein voll da war. Gut jetzt in einer früheren Genussphase und wohl auch noch in einigen Jahren.

    November 16, 2019 - Very nice wine and drinking well with an hour of air. Last sip was the best. I'm really liking this level/price point of Bordeaux from 2009 and 2010, the quality is fantastic for the price. This wine should continue to evolve nicely over the next decade.

    October 9, 2019 - Still young but not by much. Big fruit for a right bank-er but settling down I think. Not a lot of terroir or garrique from the two bottle's I've had but hoping it will develop a little more in the next 5 years. Needs a couple hours to open up and settle.

    August 28, 2019 - thick and syrupy. Flavors of black cherry and charcoal. Well balanced, long, and delicious.
