    January 12, 2020 - Blood and minerals, with dark, savory cherry fruit and a perfectly light touch of green. Fresh and resolved with a silky texture. Totally integrated and delicious.

    December 11, 2019 - Dark fruit (cherry, blueberry), pepper, herb, slight olive, good acidity. Slight chalk. Earth. Lingering finish. Really enjoyable.

    August 31, 2019 - Last bottle a year ago. Really starting to come around. Sweet loam and manure with bell pepper plant and sour cherry on the nose. Sour cherry and a peppery herbaceousness with plenty of acid and mouth filling tannin. Medium bodied, young on its feet and a step above the last bottle, the finest example of a refined chinon I’ve come across. Paired magnificently with linguine with red pepper pesto with pecan and mushroom.

    November 23, 2018 - Followed over two days. Nose seems a bit reticent; notes of sweet, lifted dark cherry and a bit of green pepper foliage. Dark cherry with hints of kirsch like sweetness on the palate with vivid fruit quality. Quickly transitioning to a sweet, mouth filling tannin with a lengthy mineral laden finish. Just a bit thin on the mid-palate. Medium bodied, smooth and refined. Looks like this will improve. Drank unaccompanied, envisioning a pairing of Swiss steak braised with bell pepper and tomato.
