    December 29, 2016 - Tannins present, but developed, acidity ok, intense ruby color, ripe red fruit, discreet mineral scent

    September 25, 2016 - Consistent w/previous notes a few years ago. Very balanced, clean, but lacking in depth and complexity. Still, a nice, drinkable, food-pairing wine - went well with roasted chicken on this afternoon. We enjoyed it. Drink now - 2020.

    August 2, 2016 - Dark, brooding, and very earthy with red and black fruits. Long mineral finish. Was very good!

    December 27, 2013 - Very clean, expressive Chinon. Tart raspberries and green peppers on the nose with very bright cherries on the palate. Finish is smooth. Slightly thin and lacks complexity, but overall a great QPR.

    October 13, 2013 - PnP. Clear, med/deep purple/red color. Another decent wine that was very well balanced/integrated. Med body, soft, good nose/flavor profile. Definitely benefitted from aging. Decent finish. Considering grape which when young tend to taste green, this was in a perfect drinking window. Nothing off. $20
