Drinking really well...Black and crimson in color. Sweet on the nose, a clear floral note. Bright, sweet and hint of smoke. Finish is soft as the tannins are fully resolved. Acid gives this wine length and finish. Has another 10+ easy.

While others liked this wine, I found it defective, with dried out fruit, wet newsprint aromas, and an unsatisfying palate and finish. Do not buy.

Needs another decade or two, but all the stuffing's there. Should be a great one!

1 hour plus decant. Dark red with brownish tones highlighting some bricking. Wine was probably just past prime drinking age. Nose was funky with metallic and damp earth elements. Nice texture on the palate, but was expecting more fruit and depth. I will say it was the longest finishing wine I’ve ever had!!! It’s very nice but overpriced in my mind.

Lovely Cab Franc dominates nose. A mix of bell pepper, cassis and lovely tobacco. Still tannins to shed. Middleweight and lithe. Not a blockbuster.

Humidor, old leather, plums and spice.
Really liked the powdery spiciness and (Pessac-like) earthiness, mushroom, damp soil, leafyness.
Gorgeous finesse and complexity.
