    February 16, 2020 - Drank from a magnum over the course of 2 nights. Stylistically big but somewhat more restrained than I was expecting. Sweet black fruit, sappy red, pepper, and generous amounts of baking spice. Medium plus intensity with high acidity. Possibly starting to shut down as it didn’t budge or blossom over night. Obviously in need of 10 years.

    September 27, 2019 - Decanted for one hour. This wine is drinking great young and I can only imagine that will improve with time. It's going to be a challenge not to drink the remaining bottles. '16's have been great young in general....I hope they don't shut down any time soon.

    May 22, 2019 - Strawberry and something savory/earthy on the nose. On the palate, liqueur-like cherry and blackberry with notes of white pepper, anise, iodine, and something herbal, with powerful smooth tannins and strong acidity. This is excellent, and it should improve, but it's only an average to good value at about $100.

    March 1, 2019 - Dances on the pallet - a symphony of Rhône perfection, this wine is the best Rhône I’ve tasted in a very long time. Fantastic finish and very enjoyable in its youth. Glad I have 7 more!

    January 4, 2019 - The 2016 Clos du Mont-Olivet Châteauneuf-du-Pape La Cuvée du Papet impresses with its depth, perfumed aromatics and astounding complexity. Wild blackberry, black licorice, raspberry liqueur, fig, dried herb and wet rock notes levitate from the glass and the wine strikes with its stunning concentration on the palate. Alongside the richness of fruit there's ample acid imparting perfect balance. If you can muster the patience I would cellar for an additional 1-2 years and then enjoy this compelling red for the next decade and beyond.
