Extensive sediment, boldly fruited wine with rich midpalate which overall is tasty but seems to fall a bit flat. Not really sensing heat but this specific bottle falls apart a bit on the finish. Perhaps suboptimal bottle?

From perfect provenance and storage- open for 30 minutes with no decant at Charcoal in Venice. Beautiful Crimson color with some browning edges. No port here. Bright and lively with great cherry pomegranate fruit, sous bois, and minerality. A lovely wine with dinner - acid and fruit in perfect balance. This bottle would clearly last a few more years as it had no sign of fading- but given others experiences- I can not see any reason to wait as it was drinking just beautifully!

Delicious! Clearly has a lot of room to grow, but this is really great right now. Very fruit forward, I can see why some people who prefer a more classic style might not love this as much (i.e., my wife), but I think it's excellent.

M'a paru plus asséchant et carré que ma première bouteille.
Un C9P large d`épaules, c`est du costaud avec beaucoup de fruit, bleuets et mures.
Même carafé 3 heures, il a paru massif.
La prochaine dans 3-4 ans!

Un peu déçu par ce vin, qui n'était pas très expressif au premier abord. Avec un peu d'oxydation et avec l'absence de filtration qui donne à mâcher un peu, cela s'améliora au bout de deux jours. Très centré sur les fruits noirs mûrs, quelques notes d'épices et l'alcool un peu marqué mais pas brûlant tout de même. Je ne pense pas qu'il faille attendre bien plus, ce n'est pas la complexité de la cuvée vieilles vignes, voilà tout.

Not decanted, consumed over ~2 hours. Somewhat consistent with my 1/3/2016 note, although this time my main impression of the fruit was intense wild strawberry rather than cherry, and the spice notes notes on the end were distinctly anise and dark chocolate. While certainly enjoyable, it left an unusual impression I don't quite know how to describe - perhaps it's best to just say that I sensed an unfilled gap between the bright and dark notes in this bottle. I'd still call it 88-89ish, I think.

Dark fruits, initially reasonably expressive on the nose, but ultimately way too thick and plummy on the palate.

Perfumed nose. Alcohol is present, especially when you swirvel the glass. It would get better balanced and integrated after a few hours. However, the palate of this producer never gets my vote. There is no difference here. It's personal preference, but I would not recommend.

Fruitcake nose and a little hot. Huge wine - 15.5% but not overblown. Almost South Australian by nature. Probably needs a good decant.

Surprisingly not too old. Merlot shows with dark fruit and chocolate notes. Good tannin, still some acidity.

Westchester Wine School - Premium Wine Tasting (Bar Lees, Mamaroneck, NY): Drank at WWS premium tasting. Ruby core, with a fairly generous woodsy, earthy nose. Lots of ripe black fruit on the palate, along with pepper, spice, herbs and exhibiting a definite earthy, barnyard or woodsy character. Wonderful complexity and lovely balance here. This wine has plenty of ripe fruit but isn't too sweet; its a big wine, but is also quite lean with very subtle nuances. Soft & silky tannins too. A great CdP that is still quite young. I believe it will only get better over the next 5 years or more. This was my #2 WOTN, and overall voted the #3 WOTN by the WWS crowd.

I lied again! I ended up finding one more of these that I thought I had drank, so I'm drinking it tonight. It went well with squash & peppers in a mild red curry. It's showing age now, but I'm enjoying it nonetheless. What a gorgeous and somewhat unusual color to this—looks like a vibrant rusty copper color in the glass. Aromas of tangerine, saline, and slight touches of red fruit and rose petal. Medium to full body, medium(+) acid and finish, and flavors of tangerine, lemon peel, cranberry, iodine, and mineral. Quite a nice rosé, especially given the ($9) price and age. 90+

Popped, breathed in bottle 90 minutes, consumed over next two hours. This was a curiosity to me. It comes across as something like a cross between a very dry Port and an undistinguished Cognac. Very dark, raisin flavored fruit, but not particularly thick or heavy. The alcohol rather than any particular impression of acidity gives it some apparent lift. The alcohol is out of balance, IMO, for fine wine, but if you think of this as very dry Port or Cognac, the balance of alcohol to other elements seems well judged. It was rather simple for the first hour, but some complicating flavor notes began to appear about 90 minutes after pouring, resulting in a more interesting "Cognac." I don't regret drinking it. Once I let go of my expectations and experienced as a curious alcoholic beverage rather than wine, I was able to find some enjoyment, but this is not what I look for, either in fine wine or in aged CdP. At this price, if I want something that comes across like Cognac, I believe I can get much higher quality by buying Cognac. To each his own. YMMV.

Impressive nose of black fruits, spice box, licorice and a touch of earth. In the mouth, well structured. Good balance of acidity and tannin. Has a long life ahead of it. Consumed after 3 hours in the decanter.

Grenat avec disque rubis.
Au nez, petits fruits rouges et noirs, épices, poivres blanc.
En bouche, beaux fruits, tanins soyeux, longueur moyenne, facile d'approche. Très bien. Pas sure que ca tiendra très longtemps.
