  • surprisingly very approachable and delicious

  • Too early to touch. Pretty big wine, very purple but intricately balanced already. But not for touching until 2017 and later.

  • Compact, some sweet blackcurrant pastille fruit, some syrah fragrance which came and went. Probably needs to rest right now

  • Well made except a tad modern. Big grapy nose at first. First taste was silky and balanced except for some oak notes. Not wowing me at $50 per. I'd like this much better as a $30 wine and after 5-10yrs to integrate the oak. The raw material is nice but the wine is very primary right now and not reveailing anything the moment other than a really nice texture and weight.

  • -- decanted immediately before tasting --
    -- tasted non-blind over a few hours --

    NOSE: Nose was very tight, but still rather pleasant; crushed granite; blackberry with some raspberry mixed-in; savory dried herbs -- bay leaf, mostly; faint stemmy note. Quite reserved at this point in time.

    BODY: medium to medium-full bodied; magenta-violet color of medium-deep depth.

    TASTE: light garrigue and tight red berry flavors; cranberry; wet stones; not overripe or underripe; alcohol not noticeable (13%); good acidity; very drying tannins; tight finish; needs time to soften the tannins and unwind. I did give the decanter a vigorous agitation after my first small pour, and this helped open the wine a bit, but it mostly stayed quite tight throughout the bottle. This wine absolutely needs more time. Drink 2014 – 2024. I could easily see my score improving with time – perhaps as high as 92 or 93.

    B: 50, 5, 11, 16, 8 = 90
