    November 22, 2016 - I read my note from over two years ago and I don't think I would change a thing. Amazing how consistent and true that Clos des Papes seems to hold up over time. Only needed about 30 minutes of air to round out and drink in great form for two days open.

    October 29, 2016 - Brisket Bash Deux: 10 Vintage Vertical of Clos de Papes and more (Siggy & Jenny's Place, Mpls, MN): dark red color. PNP, drank a small pour over 20 minutes. Drank as part of a vertical of Clos des Papes (95, 98, 99, 00, 01, 04, 05, 06, 08, 09). This has come a long, long way since I had it 4 years ago. Herbs and garrigue, cherry, kirsch, violets, tea, wood spice.

    October 12, 2016 - Brought to a dinner, shared with friends over many courses. Decanted 1 hour prior; didn't focus on wine as much as the food conversation. Great deep enjoyable nose with lots of garrigue, kirsch, black cherry and flowers. On the palate dark raspberries, garrigue, black tea and leather. Medium+ weight. Nice acids. Not huge or over-the-top. Enjoyed and well received.

    September 11, 2016 - Clearly evolved from a year ago. Only start showing well on the nose after more than 3 hour slow ox. But when it does, lot of spice on the nose. Bright and Vibrant despite 15% alcohol. Hold or enjoy with decant.
