Notes of cherry up front, berries on the nose, but tannins keep it pleasantly on the dry side — 3 days ago
Maybe it’s the perfectly grilled ribeye talking but sappy, sanguine and delicious — 2 months ago

Solid wine, good price point at under $20.
The earthiness (dense rich soil) is a bit forward, not ness bad but pronounced and in a “I do not know this terroir” category (a reason I love wine).
Id give it a year, and pair it with hearty fare like pot roast or barbacoa.

1995 vintage. Nice fill. Cork good. Decanted and tasted immediately, after 15 mins and at the 2 hour mark. Threw less sed than expected. Vibrant color. Medium body. Pencil shavings and chocolate-covered blueberries nose and flavors segued to graphite, cedar closet and the ole L-B mint chocolate chip ice cream standard. Not improving but holding steady here for the next 4-6 years. Good stuff. 11.16.23. — 12 days ago
Vintage 2006 | deep colour, ruby red/brown rim, classic smell with laurel, cassis, autumn forrest, milkchocoalte, taste still powerfull, probably enough reserves to go another 5 years, but it gives joy now. Good balance and fine acidity. | Paired with beef finch, potatoes from the oven and a salad / mixed vegetables. — a month ago
