September 25, 2016 - Decant 40 mins.
Transparent Ruby color
Strong nose, pepper, raspberry skins, prune, red current nose, seems very tight still. Prune, leather, raisin, pepper. Good wine but maybe too young. Weight a bit heavy, acid medium high. Tannins are a bit high.

July 7, 2016 - Excellent as before. Hasn't changed much since last tasting 3.5 years ago. Very complex nose and palate, not heavy or overdue. Beauty.

July 14, 2015 - First bottle of a case purchase. An aromatic nose of blackberry and black raspberry licorice, fig, forest floor, pepper and Indian spice notes that follow through on the sweet, sappy full bodied palate which linger effortlessly on the finish. A beautiful wine.2 people found this helpful Comment

May 17, 2015 - The nose is rich and plush with dark cherry, kirsch, lavender, and dusty spices. The palate is incredibly precise and balanced with a kernel of sweetness delicately wrapped in spices and herbs. This is magnificent - and a huge bargain at the 35 euros or so I paid. Drinking beautifully now and there's certainly no need to wait for the tanins to soften, though I don't see why it wouldn't age nicely too. 93-94

December 13, 2014 - Dense purple, almost black color. Dried cranberries, garrigue, herbs de Provence, licorice, pepper, crunchy dry tannins, and a fairly long finish. Textbook herby CDP, and delicious. Drinks young but well now, and should age nicely.3 people found this helpful Comment
