July 12, 2014 - This has classic 1990 disease... Overripe and simply stewy. Not up to the usual standards from this producer. (Squam)

November 3, 2013 - Very good for the vintage, vigorous, great acidity, a little rustic. Nothing of the flabbiness of some 90's. Will still improve over a few years.

December 27, 2012 - 92 pts was a night two score, nose was oaky on night one and more reserved on night two (tho with some fruit arriving), palate was similar on each night with great high acid / tart red fruits (cherry but also strawberry - which i love) on night two, also had just a touch of those great gritty/dusty tannin texture on night two as well, great wine on night two, perhaps wait five more years?
September 6, 2012 - Drank very well. Lots of fruit and elegance on the palate. Would drink this wine up in the next couple of years.
January 1, 2009 - Medium garnet with a broad tapering rim showing some brick, and clear at the very rim. Earthy, slightly feral nose showing very ripe plums and some clove spice. Broad, soft, slightly spicy mouth entry. Quite full but velvety smooth on the palate with nice bright acidity and some crunchy tannins on the finish. A classic "game bird and leaf mould" flavour and a very satisfying wine. ***
