Drank 2/16/20. Beautiful with a New York Strip.
No formal notes taken, but scents of plumb, blackberry, mint, and tobacco. Flavors of black fruit. Nice balance, black fruit on the finish. Very nice. Ready to drink now, but will easily hold another 5 years.

Drank 1/3/20 . Very nice with chicken and roasted butternut squash.
Nose of red cherry and a bit of soil. Bright, red cherry, with a touch of leather and soil backed by medium tannins. Juicy red cherry on the surprisingly long finish. Simple, yes, but who's complaining for $10?

Bright red cherry, and a bit of earth and leather scents dominate. Palate of red and black cherry, with some light earth notes are pleasant, yet simple. Medium tannins and finish. A versatile style that could pair with a wide range of foods.

Drank 2/12/20. Nice with Burgers.
Nose typical for a Bordeaux, with plum, red fruit, earth, and some smoke. Flavors are a bit muted with black cherry, accompanied by soil, and medium tannins. Medium finish. This falls a bit short on the fruit profile.

Drank 1/20/20. Nice with crab cakes.
Pours very dark in the glass, like an aged Sauternes. Nose of white peach and apple, with slight caramel notes. Peach and green apple on the palate, with hints of white pepper, backed by bright acidity and mild tannins. A very interesting white, that has not soured with age.

Bought this bottle, to cook with, for around $8. It is a Bordeaux, so why not try a glass?
Nose is typical Bordeaux, with black fruit, soil, and a hint of wet gravel. Very nice, but a touch soft. Flavors of blackberry, black cherry and earth are very nice, but lack the concentration and depth of the vintage. Pleasant finish is dominated by simple black fruit, and medium tannins. Pleasant, but a bit lacking. I dont see this improving. Drink now.

Drank 1/22/20. Very nice with lamb chops and a red wine reduction, but best to avoid anything sweet.
Scents of Blackberry, cassis, wet stones, tar, and just a hint of green bell pepper. Very dark on the palate, with blackfruit, tar, cocoa nib, and espresso. Very well balanced. Tannins are somewhat firm, with a long, dry finish. Give it at least a 30 min decant. Should hold at least 5 more years. A quality wine for sure.
