    September 22, 2014 - Ripe red berry fruits and cassis in the expressive bouquet. Good garrigue as well. On the palate a juicy wine with ripe fruits, good herbs and spices, a firm amount of sweetness and also good acidity. Beautiful tannin. The wine is in its early maturity stage now and already a great pleasure. Keeping this until 2019+ will be no problem.

    September 15, 2014 - I was excited to try this wine based on professional and CT reviews and was incredibly disappointed. Even my wife, drinking blind (just a glass of wine in her hand) was not impressed in the least.
    PnP, decanted and drank over 2.5 hrs. This did open up over time and was much better with food than without, but overall was bland and boring.
    Early on I actually thought this might be corked, but my (far better nose than me) wife dismissed that thought, and when I came back to the wine later I agreed.
    Nondescript fruit on the nose, med acid, mild/moderate tannins.
    I have 1 bottle remaining, so I hope this was just bottle variation. I'd also recommend decanting 3+ hrs prior to drinking, and hoping for the best.

    September 11, 2014 - Wow. Nose of earth, jasmine, rosemary, thyme, salted dry meat, stone, dust, oak and sweet caramelized vanilla. Huge on the palate with spicy pepper. Round and thick in the mouth with bold yet balanced tannin. Elegant and rustic. Dynamic and evolving. Way more than the sum of its parts. PJG: 93

    September 3, 2014 - Decanted 45 minutes. Very nice Gigondas, quite tight and tannic, but it's going to be great in 2-4 years.

    August 23, 2014 - Same notes as before but with more cocoa and dark chocolate showing. Decanted for an hour but still somewhat tannic in need of more time.
