Community Tasting Notes (20) Avg Score: 89 points

  • Opened yesterday, poured without decanting. Slight bricking, orange tinged ring, nose was almost repulsive.. Very earthy, barnyard like... No hint of fruit ... Taste was quite different from smell.. Soft tannins, black cherries, tobacco, complex. Decanted today... More fruit coming out in the nose but still earthy... herbal, you can almost taste the soil..lots of layers. Definitely old style.. Not one the fruity jam-bombs produced for mass consumption.

  • Fruti has faded a bit too much here. Drink up.

  • Medium red with considerable lightening (to the point of being tinged by yellow) at the rim. Dull and low toned nose of engine exhaus and earth with cow crap. While not dense with flavor, the texture strikes a nice balance between the fatness of ripe grenache with the firm tannic structure of the vintage. Midpalate grows fatter with air, with a slight spiritous quality, but there's still a juiciness beneath that's redeeming, as well as a finish that is just stiff enough. I'd age this more.

  • Opened and served right away. Notes of kirsh, some pepper and cherries. A little hollow. Some heat on the finish. Lighter flavours. Drinking more like a cdr then a cdp. Almost fully resolved tannins, medium to high acidity. Medium body and finish. Drink soon. Good.

  • As the Beatles song says: "Let it Breathe." This is a somewhat vapid wine upon opening, but puts on weight and reveals some complexity after a few hours. That said, I still wouldn't buy it again.
