    February 8, 2014 - Grreat fruit and candy on the nose. High acidity and good balance

    October 23, 2013 - Visual. Intense ruby moving towards red. Long thick tears indicative.

    Aromatic: Intense black cherry, and currant,

    Flavor: Fruit forward. Well balanced. Long and delicious finish. Adjectives are not coming to mind!

    Tactile. Good.

    September 4, 2013 - I've been drinking a lot of reds this summer, trying to catch up with my cellar and so many of them are just such a mouthful. This was such a refreshing change and a fantastic summer red. Light, bright, and juicy with just enough acidity. Notes of violets and red berries. Fruity, but not jammy.

    July 17, 2013 - PNP. Nice higher end Beaujolais. Bright red berry flavors, easy to drink. Served with broasted chicken.

    (Henry Fessy Fleurie) Vibrant and youthful, with a very homogenous crimson-red hue. A rather dense and solid layer of fresh fruit on the nose, with some forest fruits and a tinge of charcoal. Attractive and supple, with dense and slightly solid pile of fruit. A stony texture on entry, slightly hard, but with plenty of life from the fruits, and just a light tannic back bone. Attractive, with admirable fruit, but I do find it rather straightforward overall.
