    May 15, 2021 - Flirt on being overripe with roasted fruits but somehow never cross that very thin line. Earthy, gamy, dark fruits but with a sappiness that keeps everything together.
    A big boy for sure - 15% !

    April 8, 2021 - It’s weird - I’m not enjoying this nearly as much as I typically do. This bottle is rustic to the extreme. Yet not on the nose which is 95+ material. Wild, sun kissed and full of juicy dark berry fruit. Earthy and anise. Sounds like a winner, right? The palate is almost dirty earth. Some fruit on the attack but the finish is dirt and a bit bitter. Hard to swallow. Could smell this wine all night but just can’t score it well. (87)

    August 18, 2020 - Decanted for 2 hours, very lovely, big and bold, lots of dark berry on the palate. Still has a few years of life.

    January 10, 2020 - Bu à l'aveugle lors d'un diner entre amis, notes sommaires. Nez magnifique qui nous laisse chercher un bout avant d'en venir au Mourvèdre. Un peu de fruits noirs, d'épices et une touche de cuir qui révèle l'âge un peu. Une bouche puissante mais avec des tannins fondus et agréables, de la matière et de l'équilibre. Très bonne longueur aussi. Délicieux. J'ai adoré et un vin qui peut se garder encore un bon bout de temps et un vin au prix abordable et pour ceux qui ont beaucoup de patience.

    September 27, 2019 - I do not know why the current drink date is set at 2019 but this wine is still a brute monster. With one sip i get wave after wave of dark chocolate covered black fruits followed by a huge wave of fine grained tannins at the back end. The wine is very primary with very little tertiary elements. If you are a big bold napa drinker it is time to drink now. However if you are looking for development it is not there yet. The wine was good and would've been better with some heavy food but it came off as too much for me. A promising wine and strongly recommend trying this at least 5 years later but may need 10 years to get more interesting tertiary peak rather than this monolithic primary fruit monster that it is today.
