    April 16, 2016 - Every time I have this wine, I walk away impressed and this bottle was no exception. Still vibrant, fresh, lusty and full of life, the fruit were there in abundance and the delicious finish really sticks with you.

    May 21, 2013 - Tasted blind, I was sure this was several years younger than its true age. The attention grabbing aromatics with their earthy, pepper, kirsch, garrigue and spice don’t let go. The silky, ripe, array of ripe fruits on the palate are even better. There is no reason to hold back from popping a cork if you are lucky enough to own this wine.
