    September 11, 2020 - Opened a few hours before and double decanted off sediment. Really super for a while. Rich, earthy with enduring and complex fruit and formidable tannins. A bit of brett added intrigue. The acid that has defined this vintage of Pegau was in balance. After an hour or so from serving it seemed to lose its vigor - maybe the mountain altitude because a number of other wines have done the same over the last couple of days.

    May 1, 2020 - Hint of lift/spirit on the nose. Alcohol noticeable on the palate (feels more than 13.5%) Nice sweet aged fruit, tertiary phase. It's pretty much what I expected and it's an enjoyable aged Chateauneuf but let down by being a bit disjointed with that spikey alcohol note.

    February 24, 2020 - Drinking really well now. Silky, med. body, spices, garrigues, melted licorice, well-integrated, just touch of brett for complexity. :) My WOTN. Hedonists Meet-up at the Red Lion.

    January 17, 2020 - Still drinking beautifully, sweet red fruit, lavender and a hint of pepper. Paired with grilled marinated flank steaks and it was wonderful.
