    March 28, 2020 - Lovely wine that to me seems fully mature. Good core of dark fruit and spice with atouch of earthiness. Certainly seems to entering its prime drinking window. I would drink up over the next year or two.

    March 19, 2020 - This wine is now drinking quite well.
    Rich spice, dark and red fruit, balanced and and a nice finish. Since everything is blooming, I cannot speak to the nose.
    It went nicely with Tex-Mex.

    March 16, 2020 - PNP with honey baked ham and scalloped potatoes. Very good wine, with notes of spice and pepper, medium body and good finish. Sightly tilted to tannins over fruit, but improving greatly with food. The first few sips before dinner was served were quite austere.

    March 8, 2020 - Second Sunday Group: 2010 Chateauneuf-du-Pape (R&D's): Double blind. Opens with notes of black raspberry, pepper amd spices- nutmeg. Tannic. Red fruit and nutmeg palate. Becomes more dark-fruited as it sits in the glass, adding a woody/stemmy note that I like, along with a hint of cedar and herbs. Good but not as expressive as others in the lineup, remaining a bit firm and tight. 90-91 pts.

    My #7, Domino's #5
    Group #6, 65 pts

    Clearly a hold at this point, this is simply too young.

    February 21, 2020 - Really fine wine. Just beginning its drinking window for my taste. Attractice aromas savory and sweet wafting, no heat. Palate is balanced for a CdP although some sweetness kicks in now and then to remind you of the vintage.
