    October 27, 2017 - Smoke, cherry and a hint of spice. Palate has lush cherry intensifying into pepper and a smooth integrated palate with a hint of minerality. Finishes with tannins dryness but a lingering fruit.

    September 28, 2017 - Same as last bottle -- lively, spicy and enjoyable mid-week wine

    September 24, 2017 - Lovely wine. May be going through an awkward stage now. Not as good at the prior bottle I had.

    August 13, 2017 - Tasted alongside the 2011 Beaucastel double-blind. This offered strong yet suave Grenache character, great balance, and a Chateauneuf-du-Pape-like sense of place. Though smoother than the Beaucastel, it also seemed more rustic. Guessed this to be Old World and the Beaucastel New World. Great experience. Fine wine.

    August 7, 2017 - Showing so much finesse and balance with garrigue, briary fruits, spices, olives and very much rhone. Had double blind next to the Beaucastel cdp and I had them flip flopped
