    March 19, 2017 - Chateauneuf-du-Pape Disneyland... had the 2011, 2006 and 1998 on the same night. This was the least interesting of the three. Needed a 4h decant to open up, not very complex and by it's tannins I would say it may need more time. I eould say hold another 4 years at least.

    February 12, 2017 - Hypnotique! Four hours after opening, this Beaucastel was fully showing its greatness. Dark garnet color, with ruby edges, a medium body, and magnificent legs. Dark flowers, ripe fruits, and subtle spices on the nose. Dark cherries, blueberries, cranberries, terroir and spices delight the palate. As the flavors mingle and linger, a surprising cola emerges along with fine vanilla, deep chocolate, and enchanting anise. As the finish rolls on and on, the true star of this show is luxuriant texture enveloping all the senses like the plushest cashmere. This is the essence of a spellbinding CdP at its best.

    January 17, 2017 - We shared this with friends on 1/17/17. It had a deep, rich, elegant and earthy bouquet of lavender, raspberry, blackberry, anise, cinnamon, bay leaf, herb, spice and mineral aromas. The palate was rich, deep, elegant and dusty dry with flavors of blackberry, raspberry, black cherry, toast, herb, spice and minerals. 92+

    January 12, 2017 - Birthday wine....

    Deep, dark burgundy, full bodied, high ABV
    Chalky, high minerality, Dark cherries, raspberries
    Big and juicy. A succulent wine. Sweet prunes. Some light oak.

    A wonderful wine for sure. I will open my next one next year. This wine will only get better.

    December 30, 2016 - An old favorite-tasted on the 7th night of Chanukah with traditional fare- roast chicken, potato pancakes etc.

    Medium ruby color with some signs of aging/lightening at the rim.

    Pronounced and evolved nose of red fruits, baking spice, smoked meats and Smokey roasted nuts.

    Full boded with medium acidity and tannin. Lots of red fruit, spice and smoke on the palate with a long savory finish.

    This has always been one of my favorite recent Beaucastels and if memory serves me correctly no Hommage was made this year, so all the fruit went into this one.

    Dinking well now and will age for another decade- but why wait!
