    January 17, 2016 - Well made but lacking some complexity. Late in life likely past its prime.

    January 29, 2010 - Nose of red fruit that doesn't last thru the mid-palate. Slightly herbal finish. Overall a bit of a disapointment.

    September 28, 2008 - Chateuaneuf in ATL 9/28/08: Very good showing. Group like this more than I did initially. High-toned sweet cherry and herbal notes on the palate. Reveals more earth, leather and pepper with time. Opened nicely over time. WOTF.

    September 21, 2008 - Pop and pour. Same newish-looking cork that others have noted. Big beautiful perfumed nose...almost Burgundian. A bit thin on the palate for me, with pretty big white pepper. Brief finish. Interesting, but I probably won't be looking for more.

    July 26, 2008 - Very nice sweet red cherry, kirsch, earth, tapenade flavors, medium bodied, nice texture and finish. For an "off year" in Rhones, this is a very good Chateauneuf du Pape, drinking beautifully. Paired with grilled pork chops with sage and garlic.

    (Clos du Mont Olivet (Châteauneuf du Pape)) Loads of fruit on the nose. Elegant body, good fruit, and soft but still obvious tannins. Needs time.
