    June 9, 2019 - Well, continuing to improve! Can't believe these CdP from a negociant are doing so well and a 2006 at that. Animal fur and gamy to begin with followed by juicy but not excessively heavy black fruit. Quite balanced. No trouble aging further.

    April 29, 2019 - Pretty light for a CdP. Mature raspberry and black cherry flavors with a hint of spice and forest floor. Aromas are the best part -- lavender and dried herbs. Opened for about an hour. Don't see this getting any better.

    February 2, 2019 - Decanted and tasted after drinking a couple of jammy fruit forward new world wons this was a nice contrast.
    Lots of terroir drive flavors, bark, leather, truffles, fresh dirt, all balanced by notes of tea, plum and black cherry, with the latter filling out the finish quie nicely. My last bottle of twelve.

    March 22, 2018 - Very delicious, incredible QPR at $30 US dollars. Aromatics are intense, with bright red fruits mixed with black fruit overtones, there is also sandalwood, garden herbs, subtle earthy notes. I could sniff this all night.
    Layered earthy black cherry, raspberry, cranberry, and tart plum flavors persist elegantly on a long and pleasant finish where tannins are mostly integrated. This wine is clearly old world goodness, but is just entering its prime drinking window as it still has a primary feel to it. Drink now with aeration or hold until 2026.

    August 18, 2017 - Garnet hued wine with a nose of berries, forest floor, and sandalwood. Soft in the mouth with tastes of cherries and tart berries. Very nice on the extended finish. A solid rhone wine. Very enjoyable.
