    May 2, 2016 - Absolute perfect! And first wine ever to score 100 points!

    I have had this two times before and had no expectations, as I experienced it rather closed the last time.

    After 4.5 hours of decant and chilled to 16-18 degrees (This is very important for this to top perform!!!), this came into a perfect state where everything came together. Extremely complex on the nose with truffle honey, violet flowers, strawberry, soft green herbes, redberries, blackberries, vanilla, leather, cedar and a faint hint of barnyard. The best part, you get everything on the palate where the layers of these beautiful notes are everchanging. It continues to change for 2-3 minutes in the aftertaste.

    Be aware that decanting less than 4.5 hours shows too much of the tanins and if not chilled to 16-18 degrees, the wine drops to 93/94 points as the alcohol becomes too apparent...But hey...You just got the recipe to make this sing!!! Any deviation from this advise is simply your choice to ruin a perfect experience.

    Enjoy...

    April 18, 2016 - HdR Seminar 1: CdP (Hospice du Rhone): 85% Grenache. Purple, ruby at the rim. The nose is clay with black raspberries. Also a kind of "Kool-Aid" powder quality. On the palate, firm tannins. Lots of sweet black raspberry fruit. Great texture. Gorgeous finish. This wine certainly needs a lot more time to develop but it is a star! Great wine.

    March 14, 2016 - Gorgeous. Deep and dark yet light on its feet. Clearly young - just straight up entrancing. Pretty and subtle nose. Hard to believe, in the mouth, that it is 16% alchol. No heat. Just beautiful flavors and a long finish. The flavors are predominantly blackberry compote. Cannot wit to follow this over the years.

    January 12, 2016 - 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.
