Dark fruit, full mouthful of tobacco and spice. Secondary nuisances just starting to develop. Smokey oak on the finish. Nice length on the finish. It well balance and complex.

The 2013 needs some serious decanting, their prime will 2020 - 2035. The 2013 are a slightly better wine and will age well for the next 30 years. The 2012 will collapse sooner and not age as graceful.

Oh what a disappointment. Not that I was expecting greatness but this wine was undrinkable for me. A heavy nose of urinal cake, dirty urinal cake that did not blow off even after 3 hours. The nose overpowered everything else this wine could muster up. Hope it worked as a drain cleaner. It made the 2007 Perrin and Fils Cotes du Rhone Reserve I opened in its' place taste downright collectible. After enjoying Graton Ridge's Estate Pinot Noir I was really looking forward to their PS. Buyer beware.
