    August 24, 2017 - While young, it was light and very aromatic. Would enjoy trying in 10 years when tertiary kicks in but consensus at dinner was this is an epic unicorn wine. Very refined.

    May 10, 2015 - Dark berries, oak and a hint of leather. Great balance!

    July 25, 2009 - Phil's B-Day; 7/23/2009-7/25/2009 (Chicago): dark fruits with vanilla, toasty oak and a great balance of spiciness and coffee. Very "cult" like in the approach and taste

    July 25, 2009 - Phil's MONUMENTAL 33rd Birthday Wine Tasting (Knightsbridge Wine Shop (Northbrook, IL)): Jen searched long and hard to find this extremely rare bottling from Pomerol for Phil's 33rd birthday celebration.
    Decanted 1 hour. I know that everyone at the tasting didn't agree with me, but I felt this was a perfect wine --INCREDIBLY YOUNG -- but perfect nonetheless.
    The color was a truly silk-like medium dark purple. Not opaque, the nose was etheral. You could easily smell this wine from across the room.
    Though quite New World in style, the extraction and pungance of the nose was unlike anything I've ever experienced.
    Gobs and buckets and barrels and truck loads of concentration while still keeping its alcohol, tannins and acidity in check even at this astoundingly young age.
    Freshly baked cherry, cranberry and spicy raspberry pie topped with red apples, light caramel, leather, white and black truffles and gorgeous red vegetation.
    After each sip I can do nothing but smile. The palate is flawless. Once again, even at this young age, it remains accessible enough to see the massive amounts of fruit, earth and pink flowers.
    The back end shows more evidence of oak, vanilla and cream cream cream.
    A feminine tannin structure, this wine has the acidity to last for at least two or three decades while IN MY OPINION, and with enough air, it's enjoyable now.
    I may never again try a Le Pin. This was an experience that was difficult to put into words. Even as I read back my tasting note, I feel I haven't conveyed my true awe of this PERFECT wine.

    July 25, 2009 - A Weekend of Excess; 7/24/2009-7/25/2009 (Chicago/Northbrook, IL): Dark color. Somewhat spicy, Rhone like aromatics. Dark red and black fruits with some soy and asian spice. Lean fruit on the palate with bits of biter chocolate and espresso. Great minerality on the finish. A great wine, but unfortunately so young.
