    September 23, 2015 - Decanted for ten hours before consuming. The CT ratings of this wine vary considerably. A year ago I praised it, but this time it was not worth finishing the first glass. I could not identify a specific flaw, but I have to assume that it was as a number of bottles seem to be..

    March 30, 2015 - Simple but tasty, smoothed out over the course of the first hour in the glass. Medium weight as hoped for pairing w grilled salmon.

    November 26, 2014 - Less than I'd expected, perhaps better had we decanted.

    October 21, 2014 - Should have decanted for at least four hours prior to tasting. Agree with the medicinal notes though less pronounced as the wine opened up.

    October 2, 2014 - Huge Tensely fan and wanted to rate this higher but just wasn't there for me. Some fruit and lots of spice and a bit of medicine alcohol that was too strong for me. Drank over several days and never got better. Had the 2012 grenache recently and loved it!! So maybe it was just off or shut down...
