Recently I had a bottle of the St Damien which was very polished, this on the other hand is a wild beast. Great depth of fruit and wonderful wild herbes du provence on the nose. Firm tannic structure. Enjoy now on the wild side or cellar. Bravo!

Just a lovely wine and bursting with berry flavors and a nice finish though I would expect a continued upside over the next several years.

Seemed closed compared to the 2014 i recently enjoyed. Opened for two hours of slow-ox but wasn't enough.

Wow I can’t believe this was a $100+ wine. No depth. No character. I was hoping i hadn’t paid more than $25 and even then I would have been disappointed.

Nice Bordeaux blend with significant tannins but opens up after 2 hours. Definitely needs a good decant.

Interesting wine with drying tannins and a sharpness to the fruit profile. May evolve with a year or two in the cellar.

Youthful but good fruit and moderate tannins. I suspect this will gain complexity over the next 2-3 years.

Well structred Napa cab with good core of fruit and long finish. Probably needs a few more years to really show all its got.

Nice solid cab with big round sily monuthfeel and again a touch of vanilla on the finish. Solid under $100 Napa cab.

A bit tight and tannins present with a good dose of blueberries and touch of mushrooms on the finish. Nice but probably needs a 2 hour decant or another 2-3 years in a cold cellar.

Drank at Providence in LA. Just a stunning wine. Best pinot I've had in maybe forever. Great core of fruit and depth that finishes with a great mushroom note.

Just lovely elegance with a pure expression of grenache. For those wanting a beautiful expression of Châteauneuf-du-Pape , reach for this.

Stunning old vine field blend that just kills it. Dark as night in the middle of Kansas and yet supple and earthy with spice and pepper on the finish. Just a beauty and sadly my last bottle.
