Feel fortunate to have two nice bottles of this in the last year. Dark, meaty nose. Like a baby Cornas. Still-focused dark fruit, coffee notes, and earth on the palate that features a softly acidic backbone. This has aged quite nicely. Well done Adam.
For my money, this was just grooving last night. Nose is dark and meaty, some coffee and bacon notes. Lovely. Some dark fruit too. Palate is phat, full of dark, juicy fruit, loads of blueberry and herbs. Finishes a tad hot, but otherwise, pretty damn nice. Has aged well.
After a disappointing previous bottle, I made sure to decant for a a few hours and the results were much better. A nose of bright, juicy pastille fruit with a touch of hot asphalt and black olive. The juicy fruit continues on the silky palate. The finish is bright and fresh. Very good now and will likely improve over the next few years.
