    July 3, 2021 - Deep as the Mines of Moria, this has a penetrating quality where the aromas and flavors become images in the mind, and not just the impressions of the senses. It is clearly Cabernet Franc, but it transcends Chinon, reaching towards a singular expression that defines a place, rather than being merely of a place. There is fruit, and tobacco, as well as an earthy quality, but it’s the sum of the parts that is different, that’s larger in its being.

    March 27, 2020 - Totally a pointe for my taste right now: medium weight, silky tannins, gorgeous red fruit, smoke, earth, pencil lead. It's got it all, in a graceful package. Last night with broiled venison chops it was singing.

    May 25, 2019 - Glorious showing. This is getting better and better in the bottle, with the rough edges smoothing out and so much more depth and intensity to the tobacco, green herbal notes, and other savoury characteristics here than I remember from my last bottle. The red fruit is fresh and vibrant as ever, and the overall balance here is just fantastic. Glad I have a couple more.

    March 13, 2018 - First of 3 bottles. I agree this has the makings to be a stunning wine. Revisit in 3-4 years.

    September 25, 2017 - Really smooth, balanced and just a joy to drink. Classic soil and some green pepper and also hints of damp earth coupled with red fruit and spice.
