June 17, 2017 - Drunk over three hours. First out of the bottle showed rather harsh tannins. Subsequent glasses softened into very enjoyable evening.
The wine looks garnet colored. The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle.
March 28, 2017 - Drank over 2 days. Better on day-2 suggesting that this can easily go another few years. Restrained fruit with minerality. A food wine. The Cab Franc shined.
December 9, 2016 - lovely right bank offering but must breathe for at least an hour to hit on all cylinders
November 24, 2016 - Nice cocktail wine but could also be used with a meal this was enjoyed with baked breaded porkchops.
May 24, 2016 - Did not budge over 36 hours. Excellent QPR which will be wonderful in 5 years+.
January 6, 2016 - Hint of chocolate, subtle spice and oak on the initial nose, black cherry and plum follow. Soft tannins make an easy drinking wine that is a nice value.
November 29, 2015 - Slightly on the week side. Tannins and acidity not there. Decent black and redberry fruit showing. Drink now.
November 1, 2015 - Delicious!
October 5, 2015 - Smooth; not very complex. Enjoyable at $25
July 6, 2015 - ...similar to my last tasting. I am not sure if I would hold the 08 and 09 much longer.
