  • Popped and poured, medium-plus purple ruby, youthful. Subtle yet lovely nose of red berries, under-ripened cherries, freshly tilled soil, stems and an impression of minerals. Lively acidity adds a bit of nerve to the smooth mouthfeel. While a tad hollow in mid-palate expression, this shows delightfully fresh flavors of herbaceous-tinged red fruits and minerals which largely mirror the nose. The tannins have a mild chewiness on the moderate close.
    Seems to have settled down a bit and is showing quite nicely at present, a great red to open on a warm summer evening.

  • Very complex wine! Thank you to the wife for the gift! Goes very well with our first meal with the new smoker. Smells and tastes of Cab, Pinot, Merlot, and Zin all rolled into one very nice wine. If you need an above average everyday wine this is your winner!

  • Drinking nicely now. Open and expressive with plenty of red fruit and a touch of dirt. Light and elegant.

  • Difficult vintage and it shows. This is perfectly pleasant but it lacks the breadth of the previous two vintages. Red berry (cranberry, strawberry) aromas are straightforward. A perfectly enjoyable drink--I'm just not finding myself asking the kinds of questions that other recent vintages prompted: "what's that spicy note I can't quite identify?" or "where did that flavor come from; it wasn't there 30 minutes ago?" Actually this kind of reminds me of the better vintages of the Raisins Gaulois.

  • Pleasant, red fruited and juicy. Has some flora and stalks. Its a little shy now. Silky palate with ok persistence.
