    January 15, 2016 - Showing way above it's pedigree, this bottle was rocking tonight. Very clear hue. A fairly stinky nose with good high tone, nice spice, licorice, and garrigue to spare. In the mouth it's got a medium red fruit character, very pleasant attack and good length. The finish has a bit of bite or I'd give this a couple more points. Overall it's a nice treat to pull out mature CDP on a random Friday night, enjoy it, and then find out it cost $21 back in the day. Drink now, probably has a couple more years on it. Glad I didn't open sooner.

    April 24, 2015 - Consistent with previous bottles, mixed red and black fruit and Asian spices on the nose. The palate is a bit muddled with predominantly red fruits, strawberry and red cherry, it's a medium minus acidity which is what I think is driving the lack of precision. Drink up.

    February 15, 2015 - Monthly Tasting Group: CDP's and Southern Rhones (Meritage, St. Paul): Notes were pretty well gone by this point, just a taste and I thought it was very good.

    January 30, 2015 - This is better than the last bottle but still not all that attractive. Still quite drying on the backend. Died hard after one day.
