    September 11, 2021 - Outstanding Châteauneuf-du-Pape! At $69, outstanding QPR for our taste. One hour decant allowed it time to open, revealing layers of flavor and a great finish. Plan to pick up some additional bottles and hold for a few years after reading a recent comment. We've had at least a dozen different CdP and this was by far the most complex, interesting, and flavorful one we've found. Decided to spend a few more dollars than we usually would for Rhone and it paid off in spades. Plan to try some other vintages of this same wine too.

    September 5, 2021 - Open and a brief decant and surprisingly that was all it needed to shine. Dark berries, plum and botanicals on the nose. Medium+ in body with rich flavors and red fruits, black pepper and a finish that was lasting with a spice and herbal hint. An outstanding CdP especially for the price.

    August 25, 2021 - Don't pay too much attention to my rating - it is a guess. This wine is young and sappy, but not really ready to drink unless you want young Grenache/Syrah (it can be pleasurable sometimes if you are looking for loads flavor and alcohol - like at a fancy barbecue). I am expecting the sweetness to wain over time which should make it very interesting. In any case, this is a very good wine with a good future - the flavors are great right now. I'll wait at least 5 years before I try my next one - the only reason I tried it now was because I moved my wine collection to storage and this was the only case I missed. It was buried under a pile of discarded boxes!
