    September 11, 2016 - Can wine get better than this?

    Double decanted last night to a ton of sediment, and then the bouquet was leaping and catapulting out of the glass. A gorgeous, burnished black plum color, the texture was substantial yet supple in the mouth. This Cornas feels both opulent and austere, rich and savory, racy and plump, all at the same time, amplified in technicolor. Each sip seemed to satisfy completely, while at the same time the wine was enlivening the palate, begging for another sip.

    This is irresistible now but should cruise comfortably in the cellar. Without a doubt amongst the greatest wines I've ever tasted.

    September 10, 2016 - Northern Rhone Bash at Ivan and Ronnie's house: big bright cherry and blackberry. bold wine, with lots of power and structure. tar and earth in the mid. oak is there still - needs more time. smoky and peppery on the finish. very good indeed.

    May 23, 2016 - Blood and tar and dusty tannins support some bright purple fruit. Multi-faceted and serious. The cork was very dry on this bottle, so I suspect it could be better.

    April 15, 2016 - Dark inky purple, perfumed and orderly nose of black cherry, earth, wood, graphite, eucalyptus and brown sugar, bright and fluid on the attack with brambly and spiced red and black fruit, mocha and mint, finish is long but lots of wood, dried cherries, teethy tannins and lingering red currant notes

    March 23, 2016 - Needs 3 hour decanting at least. Finally opens up with warm spice, coffee. Pepper, spicy, balanced. Can be aged for another 10 years.
