    August 22, 2019 - Gorgeous. Lush, great nose, fruit, right at its peak.

    March 10, 2019 - Fully mature, this is gorgeous. The ripe, juicy, sweet, peppery, earthy, garrigue and kirsch is a blast. The wine is still concentrated, lush, ripe and juicy with a strong hint of spicebox in the finish. Full-bodied, round and showy, this is a beautiful example of fully mature Chateauneuf du Pape!

    September 27, 2018 - Really lovely. Soft black cherry, licorice, earthiness, garrigue and, ahem, barnyard, with a hint of sweetness on the finish to offset the savory elements. Surprisingly deft at this age, silky smooth, concentrated and yet weightless. Very long on the finish. This has aged very well.

    August 14, 2017 - Some Eclectic, Spectacular Wines; 8/13/2017-8/14/2017 (Santa Ynez Valley): What an awesome CdP. A VA funk quickly blew off, revealing an enticing and savory nose of meat juice, olive and balsam. Beautifully textured on the palate, with black olives dominating the captivating blend of black fruit and pepper. A singular wine, unmistakably of its place. Faded a bit after two hours or so. Still at peak but with a limited window once opened, I think.

    June 12, 2017 - Bring a Very Good Red . . . Again (Tilia): Medium-bodied, nice to drink a CDP that isn't over the top, but this seems like it might have faded a bit. While I enjoyed it, it didn't excel into the exceptional range to me.

    (Clos du Mont-Olivet "Cuvee Papet") This wine, for a Grenache, was pretty good. I have been hating Grenache recently but this one was nice. Not hot, not stewy and not too fruity. Those are my three top complaints about Grenache . . .so we were off to a nice start. This had nice acidity and freshness along with all the nice CDP garrigue and funk. I really liked this.
