This is the real deal. Candy notes with plumb cashews and a nice bacon smoke. Tantalizing cork that won't let you drink it and a nice odor of yesterday.

Scents of violets and plum. Hint of smoke, blackberry and spice. Sleek and lithe. Going to be amazing. Oui oui!

Having a BIG porterhouse steak and drinking some wine. All 3 of my seconds this weekend have been so different and I have enjoyed each and every one of them. Thanks to my buddy @Todd Abrams for picking these out for me.

Dark purple fruit, it has the authentic Bordeaux bass structure and bright acidities of 2014. Graphite and tobacco notes dominant.

More fruity and spicy than 2008. This concentration should show good potential. At least 30 minutes, we should wait, then it became calm and balanced. 2014 @, And - JH, 190501-190605

Punches way above its weight. Can easily be mistaken for a first label.
