    July 31, 2020 - Pop and pour... wow this thing is packed and in balance. Super clean, long finish. Silky tannins. The slightest hint of heat that might meld into the wine over the next year. Otherwise crack one open, in its prime for my taste.

    July 7, 2020 - Dark, tight, and concentrated. Blackberry, garrigue, and crushed stone. Lots of extraction with acidity and structure to match.

    June 11, 2020 - This is a spectacular bottle of wine even so young. After a six hour decant the wine begins to open with a powerful nose of pronounced blackberry, plum, cassis, vanilla, cigar box and spice. Full-bodied and beautifully balanced even with the currently gripping tannins. Flavours of blackberry, plum and chocolate with a hint of earthiness. Finish of black fruit and chocolate lasts and lasts.

    April 16, 2020 - This wins the contest for most varieties in a wine. The one thing this doesn't have - heat. Delicious vintage for this. BlackBerry and honey, mineral and earth. Something for everyone in this bottle. High mourvedre and it tastes like it. Overall, is it worth the upcharge though? Maybe a few bottles yes.

    April 5, 2020 - Granate de buena capa con ribete algo abierto. Nariz intensa, seductora, perfumada, con matices licorosos, monte bajo, toques de caja de puros, toques especiados, fruta roja. En boca tiene buen ataque, bastante cuerpo, contundente pero muy fino, fresco, tanino intenso aún falto de pulirse, notable estructura y bastante longitud. Un vinazo que aún estás creciendo en botella.
