  • Best of my 3 bottles.

  • This is on the back end of its maturity curve. Too much fruit which hasn't aged very gracefully.

  • A good and mature primarily grenache (85% grenache / 15% syrah) central rhone blend daily drinker red wine and a good QPR wine. Decanted for about an hour and this helped the wine soften up. Enjoyed for dinner this evening with Chinese food and it stood up well. Somewhat muted nose of soft red fruit and strawberry. Dark red, peripheral bricking, medium bodied, soft mouth feel, decent aftertaste, minimal oak at this point, soft tannins and fading acidity. Primary flavors center around soft red fruit, berries, balanced oak, earth and a hint of cigar box on the late palate. This wine is in a very mature drinking window with minimal tannins left and I do not think that there is any further upside at this point to further cellaring - needs to be drunk up sooner rather then later. I do recommend this wine with the caveat that this needs to be drunk up in the next year or so.

  • Nice dark red with a touch of red, this is saturated, rich, bordering on sweet. Dark blackberry, slightly gritty nose. Blackberry, black cherry and peppery on the palate with just a bit too much sweetness. This has softened considerably since I first got it. How does Parker give this a 93? Drink up.

  • The wine looks brick colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle. It smells like raisin, petrol and flint. It tastes like alcohol/hot, mineral and grapefruit. The body is medium/full. The wine has round texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has medium acidity.
