    November 21, 2016 - No decanting and not really needed. Too rich and young still
    Much like 8 months ago ( Papies 91) the wine is still at that dark and muscular phase but in not in anyway harsh. Ripe, oaky dynamics, mocha, light vanilla, smoky side. Serious fruit depth and albeit very forward felt in balance and had an elegance to it. Obviously one needs to like that fruit forward side to enjoy it. Good 91 for now .

    November 18, 2016 - The vintage shines through here, as the wine seems just a bit heavy and a wee bit pruny; quite good for the vintage, a solid effort and better than most wines from the region, but in the lineupo of Sisseck 11's, this is the weakest - and it does remind me a bit of 2011 in the southern Rhône

    October 3, 2016 - Tasted with and without decant. Quite "constructed" in the sense that it was clearly too much of everything. Young and fresh are perhaps the most positive description I could give, but that impression only lasted until facing the bitter and harsh tannins. Disappointing.

    and flavor galore.

    March 9, 2016 - Opened and served. Not decanted and to be honest at this stage it doesn't need it. The wine is too young and fresh for any evolution.
    Dark purple in color, glossy, muscular but not harsh. Obviously the ripeness is on the high level and so is extraction and to some part the oak although it didn't feel overpowering albeit it does have a good helping(the oak that is). Rich, firm and well made. Very young for sure but to be honest felt like in a good place and was quite enjoyable. One needs to like a bit the fruit forward style but a very good wine. 91-92 and with promise.
