    September 26, 2015 - Still primary. Concentrated with ample sweet and ripe black fruit and loads of sweet vanilla oak which needs time to integrate. On the palate it is smooth and creamy with very deep flavors of black blerry fruit and sweet spices. A real pleasure to drink even now but I think it shows just a hint of its true potential.

    September 25, 2015 - Celebrating Yiannis Karakassis' Master of Wine Entitlement (Food Mafia Restaurant, Glyfada, Greece): Very dark ruby. Powerful and sweet nose with excessive oak at this stage but the blackberry fruit is so powerful that will take over after ceveral years of cellaring. Full-bodied, rich and generous but still a baby. Long aftertaste. Cellar for at least another 5 years.

    June 18, 2015 - TN: Rhone dinner (The Grill Room at Capella Hotel Georgetown): Expressive perfectly ripe sweet black fruit driven nose, cassis, white flowers, liquid smoke, a hint of tapenade and garrigue. Exceptional concentration, intense black fruit driven palate impression, silky, cool and polished mouthfeel, bright acidity, nicely integrated tannins and seamless long finish. Obviously very youthful but perfectly enjoyable. Need another ten years of cellaring to reach the peak.

    March 25, 2015 - Last of 8 2005 Northern Rhones tasted blind. Gorgeous polished nose of vanilla, blueberry preserves, and white pepper. Very silky textured with a plush mid-palate and deep dark flavors of cassis, blackberry and dried flowers. Long finish and still very youthful. This is ought to be almost immortal and drink well for decades. Group's #2 and my #2 of 8 but it was a virtual dead heat between this and the Chave Hermitage that came in first. The nose on this, the La Landonne and the Chave led me to guess they were the 3 "LaLas" but turned out La Turgue had been saved for later..
