    February 20, 2013 - Another lone straggler from the cellar. Garnet color with some clearness at the edge. A somewhat piney and woody nose leads to a medium bodied, raspberryish, and smooth earthy palate with mostly resolved tannins. The finish, however, shows signs of brett and at least to my palate some overripe qualities that some might call savory, but for me were off-putting. This brettish quality grew as it sat in the glass. Enjoyable for what it is -- a mature, hot-climate red that would have been better10 years ago but which still offers some immediate pleasure.

    October 25, 2011 - Much better, and one of the wines to drink at the moment. Touch of barnyard on the nose, withered fruits and violets. Warm and inviting, it's in balance, with no harsh edges. Justva delight to drink. Imagine it's lost a bit of fruit from it's youth, but at this age it does not need it.

    March 11, 2011 - Farewell Chertsey (Home): Sweeter-fruited nose from the off. Definately a touch of the south here - olive grove and warm summer breeze. Similar on the palate; a sense of more alcohol, ripe fruit and the syrah content coming through balanced by a savoury element towards the finish. Slightly grainy tanninscompared to the LLC & Palmer. Initially the showier and more expressive of the three, but although it evolved in glass it didn't improve in the same way that they did - this the tortoise to their hare. Lovely wine though. ****

    May 9, 2008 - Domaine de Trevallon (Rouge) Offline (Alba, London): Lovely nose, fresh pure and focused. Mineral. Best yet. Smooth, refreshing, balanced palate. Really lovely. 85 Claret-like. Just lovely. *****

    April 5, 2008 - Trevallon 1985-2004: This starts out with a bit of bretty band-aid right out of the gate, the nose also offers up chalky minerality and muddy earth notes that add depth and complexity to a base of boysenberry jamminess. With time one finds a touch of mint, some tire rubber, a hint of leather and top notes of black olive and dried pine cone. In the mouth this is medium full bodied and fairly resolved with a solid core of acidity. The palate is richly savory though a touch drying with an intense mineral earth finish that is broad yet cut short by the brett and somewhat rustic tannins. Fore square and structured. This should be drunk in the near term, 2008-2013
