    August 13, 2017 - Really beautiful blue & black fruit, and oh so smooth. Lovely.

    November 6, 2016 - A big mistake to open this; much too young, and unlike your normal juicy 2012's this is dense, concentrated, closed, with a great future IMHO, but for drinking right now, it is not what you're looking for. wait 8-10 years, then you'll see - I think. 91++

    May 9, 2016 - Big, bold, structured CDP....but needs a lot of time.

    Began to open and evolve on day 3. Needs another 5-7 years before it hits prime time.

    Drink 2022+

    September 10, 2014 - Soft, ripe, sweet, spicy fruits taste good and feel even better on your palate from his Grenache dominated wine that was blended with 2% Mourvedre and reached 15% alcohol.

    January 18, 2014 - Barrel sample: Nose of red cherries with a hint of licorice… very nice fruit of red berries, and red ripe cherries, nice minerality
