    April 25, 2019 - I've found this producer's CdP to be a fresh and early drinking wine, so not really surprised to find this CdR to be in a similar vein. Purplish ruby in color with transparency. Aromas of dark fruit, graphite, wet slate, and a bit of garrigue. Medium body, medium(+) acid and finish, with flavors of dark fruits and fairly strong minerality. I don't know that this is a big ager, but there's a little grip to it and I think it could go a few years anyway. Pretty solid CdR for $14 that would work well with burgers, pot roast, portobellos, and lamb. 87-88

    April 7, 2019 - Shows great promise. Continued to open up over 5 days. Notes primarily from day 5. Definitely decant if you plan to drink young. Medium plus viscosity. Pretty dark ruby robe. Red fruit, mineral, anise and sous bois nose. Similar in the mouth with a not wholly pleasant metallic note that comes and goes. Medium + finish with bitter almond/grapefruit pith and saline dominant. Paired beautifully with rare "denver cut" steak and dashi. Will try to wait until 2021 for the next.

    March 7, 2019 - The wine is medium to dark purple in the glass with a nose that shows dark fruits, plum, banking spice, leather, and meat. On the palate we found concentrated flavors of dark cherry and plum, with elements of herb and rose petal. There are very plush tannins that coat your mouth like a blanket.
