    May 20, 2021 - A blend of 60% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% other varieties, 15% ABV. A powerful, concentrated wine, combining fruit that borders on overripe (kirsch, plums, figs), with a remarkable freshness and minerality. The tannins are big, but finely grained and covered in flesh. Excellent density, very polished, and objectively warranting a good score, but it does not make my heart sing. Maybe the finesse will come with age? At restaurant Rijsel, Amsterdam, NL.

    March 16, 2021 - My first of 16 bottles and believe it for not, my first CDP. This was an unforgiving tannic monster upon opening and a good 8 hour slow ox really did it some good. I have nothing to really compare this against but I did almost forget and think I was drinking an opulent $100+ Napa cab at one point. The high tannins along with the strong acidic backbone likely entails a long life ahead. I’ll give the next bottle another year or two and now I really can’t wait to open one of the 2016 Reserves.

    December 7, 2020 - I got a mouthful of expensive French oak with a backend of high tannins. If you’re not a fan of oak, this may not be a wine for you. Otherwise it’s a fantastic wine. At 15% ABV it’s not entirely a style that I prefer, but it’s my son’s birth year and it’s $20 less than the going rate at my Costco so I’m buying more. Certainly will be ageable for 15-25 years. Will save the remaining bottles for at least a decade. Wine Spectator named this #5 on their top 100 of 2020 list.

    November 9, 2020 - Still young but the future is going to be bright for this one. Glad I got 3 bottles.

    November 1, 2020 - Wayyyyy too tannic. Need several years as everything is disjointed. The components are there though.
