    December 24, 2014 - Concentrated and loaded with ripe black berry fruits, good garrigue, a touch of pleasant sweetness and good acidity. Soft tannin and a good length. Really good now and no hurry at all, but I think the wine is at its peak now and the next few years. Was perfect with duck.

    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.
