    March 22, 2017 - perhpas some VA on the nose here distracting. In the mouth i see a vein of very rich, pure and refined fruit, but overall i wonder if this was an off bottle.

    March 13, 2017 - Drinking really well, ripe without being pruney or hot - much better than janasse chaupin of same vintage. Drink now or over 3 yrs.

    February 26, 2017 - -- decanted for 1.25 hours before initial taste --
    -- tasted non-blind over 2 – 3 hours --

    NOSE: sweet raspberry Twizzlers; hints of garrigue and funk; fumey; medium+ expressiveness.

    BODY: sediment present; violet color of great depth; medium to medium-deep depth.

    TASTE: earthy; sweet plums; hint of tertiary development; not closed, but seems a bit reserved/tight; a bit warming in the belly (15.5% alc.); sweet raspberry note pushes forward on the finish; medium-low acidity; a touch bitter; still some drying tannin; not yet at peak, but I do wonder if the alc. will prevent favorable ageing moving forward; finish is long and of medium to medium-strong intensity; this is a big wine, for sure. Drink or Hold.

    50, 5, 11, 15, 7 = 88

  • Bob in NC Likes this wine: flawed

    February 18, 2017 - Drank in a 3-year vertical of '05, '06 & '07.
    This '05 was most people favorite of the vertical. This wine had a little more character.
