Community Tasting Notes (20) Avg Score: 92.4 points

  • This is way over the top. Massive amounts of fruit, oak, blackberries, soy sauce and fierce alcohol. Extremely full bodied, with high intensity and a long, long finish that ends slightly bitter. Had it not been for the burning alcohol this would have been impressive, as it is now, it's just obnoxious.

  • Classic nose - with a very enticing raw meat component. Extremely good structure - strong tannins, bitter almonds, but also prevalent fruit.

  • Full body. Serious and dense, need a lot of air. Olive, tobacco, old wood, currant, green curry, and blood on the notes. Grenache blended with Mourvedre, not like any CDNP I have had before. Really can't tell if I like it, but it surely has a spectacular style.

  • Spectacular right out of the bottle. This wine is superb! Seamless with every element perfectly in place and fully expressed. Tarry, juicy, fruit driven, earthy, elegantly perfumed and generous. Unbelievably accessible at this early age and will only get better. Deep, seductive and delicious, cherries, chocolate and the whole shebang. My partner wanted to give it 100 points, and indeed it is flirting with perfection save for the whiff of heat on the finish (which does blow off given enough time.) Have revisited this wine several times and my impression of how wonderful it is just gets stronger. On day two of the most recent bottle, accompanied by a rare NYer right off the grill I found myself saying OMG with almost every sip. Had to go back and give it another point.

  • Needs time. Promising. Evolved a lot over three hours.
