    September 10, 2020 - The most consistent producer of "basic" CnD. Great fruit, integrated tannins, perfect balance, and some garrigue to remind you where it came from. Just a stellar bottle that doesn't break the bank.

    August 30, 2020 - Decanted 1 hour, cellared twelve years. Wow this was good, so balanced, full red fruits, Kirsh, meaty, so smooth but with a never fading attitude. Paired with portobello crusted thick bone in pork chops.

    August 23, 2020 - Chateauneuf du Pape lunch (Frank's place in Matraville): From Coravin. Medium minus intensity aromas initially. Showed tomato leaf, baked beans, red berries that tend to raspberry, a little Framboise in fact, sweet spice and a little pepper. Juicy, muted red fruits prove spicy, talc textured tannins. Long. Yum.

    April 16, 2020 - So much better than two years ago. Drinks well right from carafe after decant. Well integrated now, fruit matured. Not the most complex but very enjoyable.

    April 1, 2020 - Aromas of baked red berries, garrigue, slight prune, sweet spice especially nutmeg today, biscuit and a little alcohol heat which lends a pepper prickle. Juicy baked fruits, sweet spice, a little tannic burr and that alcohol warmth lending a peppery note to the finish. Nice.
