    August 12, 2020 - Plum and strawberry on the nose. On the palate, red cherry and currant with notes of clove and something slightly medicinal on the medium finish, with no detectable tannins and moderate acidity. This is probably past its peak and starting to fade; the Cellartracker drinking window looks about right. Even so it was an average value at about $30.

    June 21, 2020 - This was really nice, especially at pop and pour. Mature fruit well balanced with lots of garrigue herbacious qualities, a bit of acidity keeping it light. Pretty quickly moved away from fruit and fully into the secondary qualities and flattened out but was still enjoyable. In hindsight I might of liked this better several years ago but still enjoyed.

    April 4, 2020 - Lovely nose, olive and herbs. Distinct herbal impression on the palate, with fresh acidity and slightly dulled red fruits. Still has plenty of interest, with fine dusty tannins and a decent finish.

    April 20, 2019 - Deep garnet with a significant pale rim. Smooth in the mouth with a little acidity. Red fruits with some spice - a little indistinct, some clove. The alcohol is not too noticeable but there are some volatile flavours. Time to drink up if you have some.
