    October 27, 2018 - Rancid diesel socks nose for mad max to sniff. Beautifully horrible.

    September 2, 2018 - 14.5% alcohol. I can see this being an absolute beauty in 5-30 years. Poured from the bottle over 2 days. The bottle finally began to show something on day 2; previous reviewers did a great job of describing what the wine will become. Don’t even bother opening this for at least 5+ years. I won’t open another bottle until at least 2025.

    April 25, 2018 - So inky and unfathomably profound in shade, this wine may stain your stemware as well as your palate with its caliginous hue. With a decanter filled with crème de cassis, this full bodied, concentrated dream liquid fills your mouth and coats your palate while mesmerizing your senses for at least 60 seconds. The fruit bestows purity, intensity, length and precision. In its youth, it's intellectual; when it matures, it will be a hedonistic coup d’état. Is this the best vintage since 1990 or perhaps 1978? Yes! This is off the charts. If you you have the money, this is a wine to lay down. Once other people begin tasting this wine, and word gets out, it is only going to become more expensive.

    March 31, 2018 - P. Jaboulet Aine - Hermitage la Chapelle 1995-2015: During a merchant tasting. Dark purple. Expressive nose of dark fruit, oak, vanilla, cake, blueberry, on the ripe side. Opulent, soft palate, structure is there. Very modern vinification here. A complete wine in the quality range of the 2012 but not up there with the 2010, at least from this first snapshot.

    March 6, 2018 - The nose was intense and complex, showing animal musk and minerals up front as dried floral tones came forward along with crushed blackberry, blood orange, and smoky stone dust. On the palate, I found silky textures with masses of cool-toned black fruit, dark minerality, earth tones and violet florals which coated the senses, balanced by a wave of brisk acidity. The finish was long and structured with taut black fruits, lingering spice and hints of smoke.
