A wonderful supple nose with black fruit and a lovely bright detailed zest. So good. Fresh, long and profound.

Tasted blind. Tawny color, old-looking and translucent. Wow nose! Notes of ripe cherry, sea salt, rose petals and earth. Perfect balance in the mouth. Impactful. Still chewy in the finish. Much debate on this, but all guesses are 20+ years off. Memorable wine.

Healthy dark red. Very sexy scents of plum, spices and cedar. Rich and silky but not a bit exotic--or even advanced, for that matter--with its seamless flavors of raspberry, spices and soil energized by salty minerality. Boasts terrific inner-mouth energy and tension, no doubt partly due to the stem element. Finishes saline and very long, with edge-free tannins and uncanny lift. At once seductively sweet and youthful, this wine should continue to evolve gracefully for another two decades. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, March 2018)

Interesting nose. Just opened and fruit is beginning to come forward. Each sip begins to yield a layer of suttle fruit flavors. A slight blush of older color on the edge. Quite pleasant will be interesting paired with prime filet.

Excellent wine overall but this is the second time recently I've had CdL in a lineup of all burgs, and the notes of dark fruit liquor are not my cup of tea.

Lots of exotic spices, notes of baked cherries, plums, rhubarb and forest floor
