    May 18, 2019 - Fantastic Grenache. Drinking very well after a short decant. Great balance, wouldn’t know it was nearly 16% abv. Another knock out by Alban.

    April 13, 2019 - As good as advertised. Cool nose, blackberry cobbler and minerals. Big extraction and big acidity. Generously proportioned and very yummy - just starting to round the corner in its development

    July 14, 2018 - Big, rich fruit in the nose and flavor, blackberries, black cherries, currants, licorice, and hints of floral and herbaceousness. Full bodied wine with nice complexity, structure, and a long finish.
