    June 5, 2021 - This is a "wish I had more" wine. Beautiful nose of casis and forest floor. Still plenty of fruit and good tannic structure. Developing lots of tertiary notes, but still tastes relatively young. Not at its peak yet! I have one more bottle of this and will be saving it for a few years.

    May 20, 2021 - We've been thru a lot of this, starting to notice a little bottle variation.
    Plum, cassis, spice, and graphite. Medium bodied, fruit forward, with tannins showing still. A bit new world, but still a reasonable qpr Bordeaux.
    Went well with grilled ribeye.

    May 15, 2021 - Getting a little long in the tooth. Time to drink up this baby.

  • GlenviewGSW Likes this wine: 90 points

    April 8, 2021 - Liked the wine especially upon opening with nicely integrated tannins and a nice balanced finish. However as it got more and more air it become somewhat stewed on the finish.
