    April 10, 2016 - Opened and paired with a florentine steak roll. Slightly corky, gamey leather, sour cherry, cranberry, lean strawberry on a medium body. Brick red in the glass. Has certainly lost several steps from it's WOTY mark on Spectator, when the fruit was vivid and fresh and deep, but still drinkable and enjoyable in it's last declining phase of life. Dryish, tart/sour, has some length still. Slightly acidic.

    April 10, 2016 - Gave this an hour decant and consumed over 2 hours, with the wine showing a positive evolution over this time. Crimson color with mature bricking starting to emerge around the rim. Nose of bell peppers, flouride, garrigue and ripe tomatoes. In the mouth this wine starts acidic, thinning out at midpalate and finishing with a lingering stony, earthy flavor, with drying tannins. This is surprisingly light-bodied for a Châteauneuf-du-Pape and slightly on the austere side. In totality, it gives the impression of being mature in an Old World way. Very surprised to learn that this was #1 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 list in 2002; it must have shown a lot differently in its youth. No reason to wait, enjoy over the next two years.

    January 24, 2016 - Blind Tasting at Roy's: Blind at Roy's: This was classic Grenache cooked red fruits, bubblegum wrapper/powdered sugar, lavender, some herbs and citrus peel. Classic, if not a bit too classic and normal. Not tons of character here with a soft structure. Guessed '98 CdP, but I think '98 would have been a bit more lively and structured.
