    March 21, 2021 - 92 DF Good all around starting with an inviting nose of cherry, pepper, raspberry, vanilla and chocolate. Savory taste in a full bodied, medium acidity and spicy tannins frame. This is good juice priced well. NI:4, FI:22, FC:8, B:4, L:4

    December 21, 2020 - This is loaded with notes of cracked black pepper, smoke, ripe blackberry, and garrigue on the nose and palate. Oak is perfectly integrated, and the Mourvedre flexes with a tarry note that lingers on the long finish. A fabulous wine.

    November 1, 2020 - Dark ruby.
    Black cherries, dark fruit nose.
    14.7% alcohol.
    Dark cherries, chocolate, plums, figs.
    Good wine which should continue to drink well and maybe improve.

    April 10, 2020 - Cork looked fine, but from the nose I knew it was tainted. It tasted much better than I thought it would. Just slightly off. Might not have noticed if I hadn’t had it before. Unfortunately this was my last bottle.

    August 19, 2019 - good fruit, but the structure and depth are the key to this wine. It can last for another decade but is drinking well now. Some leather, earth, tobacco and bacon notes lend additional complexity.
