    January 26, 2015 - From Vineyard Road lot (purchased on release and cellared since). Popped and decanted at room temperature. We got right into this and, like all the Vineyard Road bottles, this is in great shape and drinking really well. Wonderful wine with all the expected elements, and just great balance, that always scores a tad lower when I drink bottles I purchased from other sources - including from some very good cellars - but the Vineyard Road bottles are great, and I wish I had more of them.

    January 11, 2015 - Popped and poured. This is a solid ruby wine with some mild sediment at the end. On the nose, this is a bit stinky at first, but that blows off to leave some good herbs underneath. In the mouth, this is smooth and lush, with some modest fruit, structured acid, and mild tannin. The finish is somewhat plummy. Overall, this is nice aged CdP. It is delicious but a bit lacking in intensity. Ready now. 92 points.

    January 6, 2015 - Opened 4 bottles for our dinner (22 people). There was very minor bottle variation in 3 that were all excellent. The 4th bottle concerned me at first with not much in the nose other than a metallic note but there was a bit of Pegau funk and red berry fruit. That funk/garrigue, and dark berry was more evident in the other bottles along with leather, and nice spicy note .. after a 2 hour decant the 4th bottle had closed the gap and all showed very nicely with a beautiful complexity of flavors typical of Pegau- red berries, herbs and a touch of garrigue. Great mouthcoating texture and moderate weight and finish. The fruit seems to have faded since my last sampling of this vintage so thinking it would be wise to enjoy the rest sooner rather than later.

    December 31, 2014 - Decanted 1hour. Fine color with only a little garnet at the edge. Very perfumed upon openng with quite a bit of brett (which blew off after about 40 minutes), leather, raw beef, bacon grease, forest duff, mushrooms, cigar smoke and anise. Medium bodied, elegant and expressive with fruit and acid in good harmony. This is not as big, meaty and dense as some other vintages e.g. 1989, which is perhaps my favorite, but beauifully crafted with black raspberry, interesting minerality, kirsch and white pepper. I think it comes up a tad short mid-palate—fruit may be on its way out?—but the finish is very, very long. Drunk over 2 hours with Thomas Keller's Slow Cooker Cassoulet (recommended BTW as an “easy, rustic” cassoulet), the wine was a perfect match. Pegau continues to be one of my favorite wines.

    November 29, 2014 - Yumm - terrific rich nose with dark fruit, funk and smoked herbs. Palate has medium-to-full body with great texture and layers. Complex. Love this - so much going on. Long, herb-filled finish.
