    November 12, 2018 - At first this was very tight, so it went into a decanter. After an hour or two it opened up a good bit. The vintage shows itself a little in that there's just a bit more of everything here, but it is not in the slightest bit heavy or overdone. Definitely classic Allemand and a strong vintage for this wine. I'd hold but if drinking now a good decant is beneficial.

    October 27, 2018 - 2015 Northern Rhones Blind: Single blind. Now we're talking - the first real wow wine of the night. An intense and full nose of polished black fruit, pepper, olive and smoked meat. Wow, the palate sports terrific concentration and intensity. Large scale, yet suave and polished. A complete wine with everything in full harmony.

    October 27, 2018 - Most of the 2015 Northern Rhones worth a damn, blind (Chicago, IL): Served single blind. A nice mix of red and black fruit and a maddeningly pretty perfume here. Great intensity throughout as well. There's a slight green stemmy tinge that adds a nice bit of interest. The palate is incredibly pure, with a raciness that I love. The palate's fruit feels more on the red side, and there was an elegance here that I loved. Ended up thinking that this was the Jamet, given the redder complexion of the fruit here.

    June 5, 2018 - There's a touch of menthol to the aroma along with blood plum, dark cherry and earth. It is a rich wine and quite juicy. Despite its size there's no heaviness and savoury flavours take over on the long finish. Beautifully balanced and enjoyable now but needs some serious cellar time.
