October 16, 2014 - Big full body wine, smokey and meaty at first opening - no decant. Dark purple in color, along with black fruit and olives on the palate. Unusual and interesting.

December 8, 2013 - Ripe black berry fruits, garrigue and minerals in both the bouquet and on the palate. Black olives. Pleasant sweetness and acidity. Round tannin and a good complexity and length. The wine is still youthful but certainly shows potential for ageing. Already a great pleasure. Great qpr. 92+
December 6, 2013 - Friday Night Double Blind Tasting $40+ (Bin 75): Dark core with garnet rim; nose of mineral and framboise, ripe and fruity with some olive in the background; flabby, strong fruit though losing some snap, a little muddled; low acid, too much fruit, and no definition should sum up the '07 vintage.
August 10, 2013 - Saturday Night Get Together Non-Blind (Bin 75): Dark core with bricking, appears to be aged; overripe dark fruit, olive, slightly bitter and sweet fruit; a little flabby, overripe, cooked fruit, fig, and finishes with alcohol.
