    August 16, 2014 - A couple of months in the cellar has done wonders. I'm glad I have a case and a half left. When I opened the bottle the kitchen filled with Chambertin-like smoke. Gorgeous nose of gunsmoke, graphite, salt and black pepper, licquorice. Cassis and a touch of red fruit lurking underneath. Assertive, spotless palate, with great Claret swagger, cassis and cedar, lead pencil. Fantastic acidity. Finishes flawlessly with tannic bite and crunchy fruit. I need to stay away from these because they will be even better in five or ten years time.

    August 3, 2014 - Good red fruit. Too red for my taste, but it is well made.

    July 31, 2014 - Rouge pourpre, Nez sur la cerise, fruits rouges, un bon côté épicé, en bouche c'est fidèle a l'olfaction. Sans surprise c'est en jeunesse avec des tannins vif astringents suivi d'une belle finale. Excellent RQP Très beau potentiel !

    July 18, 2014 - I sucked on pebbles as a kid..this wine took me back there. This is so well balanced with a little plum to start with some earth about mid palate..and then the rock. Very well layered but the finish is what stands out on this wine. It sticks with you for minutes. I truly love this wine. I have had 4 bottles thus far and it ranks as one of my favorites. You can call this wine a "value" at $20. I call it a steal from the Left Bank

    July 3, 2014 - This drinks like an expensive Pomerol, earthy, mushroom aromas, silky polished tannins, plummy flavors on the palate, fine balance and texture. A huge bargain.
