    April 7, 2016 - Drank the 2012 and 2001 Paleo. What a great expression of Cabernet Franc. The 2012 was fresh and needs some time. The 2001 is fully developed and should be drunk if you own it. A great producer, great wines.

    February 4, 2016 - Absolutely fabulous! Cork wet up to the half-way point. Beautiful lively deep purple. Bosque-y aromas. No decant or air time. Instant hit of ripe fruit, followed by a panoply of a thousand points of flavor. Nice level of acidity. Tannins present but never intruded. Silky texture. Oh, how I hope that remaining bottles deliver at this level.

    December 22, 2015 - By far the best bottle of this wine. So much more in balance.... Still full of plum fruit but silky and full of life. Super. (93)

    April 5, 2014 - Still deep garnet color. Interesting nose of spicy green pepper and blackberry sorbet. A bit of vanilla bean as well. Rich but not heavy palate - saturating and modern in profile. Very nice but could use a bit more flavor interest - a bit of a bruiser. (89)
