    August 17, 2014 - '04 vintage but holding up really well. I would drink in the next 5 years. Good balance with some earthy/funky notes. Chocolate and tobacco. Better than the '04 Clos des Papes that was tasted together.

    July 26, 2014 - The wine looks purple colored. The legs are slow. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry, mineral, violet, garrigue and Herbes de Provence. The body is full. The wine has polished texture. The wine finishes long. The wine has low acidity.

    December 31, 2013 - deep red in colour.
    this wine is very young, with big powerful tannins.

  • moveablesirkus Does not like this wine:

    November 8, 2013 - Leaky cork. Muddled fruit, the alcohol smothered anything of interest. Tasted like some run of the mill central valley syrah. I sure hope the next 11 are more interesting.
