    January 27, 2019 - Deep core, rubied, mauve tinge to rim; black olives & hint of herbs de Provence back up plenty of polished dark fruit; plenty of tannin which smoothed our post 4 hour decant; loads of supple fruit, touch of black pepper, clean cut, neat profile; has a forthright feel to an extended, grippy finish. Stood up well to buffalo fillet steak.

    January 16, 2019 - I'm scoring this wine below most of the crowd here. Very ripe, lush fruit and soft silky tannins. But that's the issue. The wine is so ripe it lacks a bit of structure in terms of tannin and lacks enough acidity to keep it fresh and balance the weight of the fruit. It's good and the ripe fruit is beguiling on the nose, but it's just sufficiently fat enough to leave me tired of it after a few glasses.

    November 22, 2018 - Tras haber catado no hace mucho un 2010 este 2015 se muestra todavía algo impetuoso aunque ya muestra algunas de las grandes cualidades que esta excelente syrah atesora. La nariz es atractiva, las notas de violetas frescas, los recuerdos a fruta roja fresca, los toques de hierbas aromáticas, algo de regaliz negra y algunos matices tostados acompañan un paso por boca placentero, con un tanino firme pero bien perfilado, buena acidez, estructura media y notable persistencia.

    November 17, 2018 - Decanted for an hour, out of 375. Just spectacular. Inky color, super-aromatic blend of herbs driven by violet-lavender and a touch of fennel. Blue-fruit driven. Medium body, not nearly the thickness one might be tempted to expect given the color. Beautiful, beautiful

    October 27, 2018 - 2015 Northern Rhones Blind: Single blind. Lives up to the hype, again, and has a distinctive olive brine note that is pure Gonon. From the get go, the nose is lifted, intense and bright with savory black fruit and olives for days. Great fruit concentration that is so smooth without any trace of heat or warmth. Olive, olive and more olive. Damn good.
