    August 8, 2018 - After drinking the '12 a week earlier, I was curious if the '11 was showing as poorly. The `11 did not show the oxidation of the `12 with much brighter fruit and a bit more pop. I think a touch higher acid is allowing the wine to age a bit longer. Unfortunately the VA was excessive for my tastes. Being from Paso Robles, the high-ABV and high-VA combo is par for the course for these big wines but was disappointing to find in a Gigondas.

    January 23, 2018 - Drinking about as well as it probably will. I can lab to wait a bit before drinking the next one just to see if it will integrate more. Tar notes at the beginning and some interesting vegetal stuff going on in the background. It’s still pretty great. I’ll echo a note from someone previous. A good Gigondas but no CdP.

    May 8, 2017 - Smooth, integrated tannins and plummy fruit with pepper, spice. Very food friendly.

    January 13, 2017 - This tasted almost exactly what I expected before opening. Solid Gigondas profile. Better than typical CDR but just not as special as true CDP. Seems ready to drink. I like it.
