In a very good zone right now. I would give it another 2 years of the window. Smooth and a bit sweet with dark fruits present.

Beautifulu complex Pinot. Not a big Pinot fan . This is meatier than most Pinots,which I like. More dark fruit forward ,and agreeing with another post that it has a bit of melon rind.

Great 100% Cab. Franc . Big , huge backbone. After an hour it was really nice as the tannins broke down. This will be much better in 2-3 years. Quality all over these grapes.

Great dark fruit . Sweet and pure . Hedonistic to say the least. Quality of grapes is outstanding from this producer.

Drinking nicely. However this could use 2-3 more years in bottle . Lots of fruit left but still hot.
The wine looks purple colored. There is no sediment in the bottle.

I didn't believe some of the earlier notes. However ,I am a believer in the 88 point range or lower. Very 1 dimensional with the fruit disappearing very quickly and getting thin. Shocked at how this has developed .

Obviously opened this too soon. I will wait a few more years before trying the other bottles. Fairly tannic and tight on opening.The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like cherry. It tastes like raspberry and cherry. The body is light/medium. The wine has narrow texture. The wine finishes short. The wine has medium acidity.

This wine is drinking very well now . I was surprised by the youth and how the wine is drinking right now. All tannins are gone. I would not wait much longer to consume this.The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. It has a slight cherry aroma. The flavors are very nicely integrated.

Drank on New Years Eve over 1.5 hours. Nice soft fruity nose on opening. First taste was of amazing vanilla bean flavor that faded slowly during the time we drank it. Perhaps should have drank this a year ago but it was a very nice wine typical of a French Bordeaux.
The wine looks violet colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle.

Tasted on January 2, 2010 Nose of blueberry and strawberry. Taste was jammy with hints of rasberry and blueberry. High viscosity and thick legs. Opened up a bit harsh but on day 2 without decanting was very good. I would suggest decanting for 1 hour on intitial opening.
