    May 26, 2019 - Very nice. Decanted 90 minutes. Significant bretty funk burned-off after about 10 minutes. Opened beautifully and developed a very complex nose of barbecue grill, licorice, herbes de Provence and some deep, rich cherry compote. Medium weight in the mouth with a strong beam of menthol followed by ripe raspberries. Finishes assertively with under-ripe cherry. This wine is in an excellent place. Still a tiny bit rough and stops just shy of elegance but that’s what I tend to value in CDP. You really get the terroir in the glass. Excellent match with beef tenderloin with caramelized shallots. Drink now but will hold.

    May 24, 2019 - Stunning clarity and purity on this. Dark red fruit with great minerality and richness. Traditionalists might miss there being even a trace of Brett and/or garrigue, but this has a freshness and allure of rich fruit, licorice and chocolate cherry that just draws you in and smothers you. Great rich palate and a finish that goes on for days!!!!

    May 20, 2019 - black licorice on the nose. chocolate, cherries, medium finish, silky smooth. Color is just starting to turn to an amber hue.

    Decanted over several hours.

    May 12, 2019 - Quite frankly for all the bottle age I gave this in my cellar it’s a big Meh. i prefer many new method Syrah’s over this. Not much else to say. Guess i better consume my other aging CDP sooner than later.
