Community Tasting Notes 5

    August 17, 2018 - Big aroma of very ripe black brambles and spice. Full-bodied and rich. This is loaded with very ripe, but pure brambly fruit of both red and black varieties as well as plenty of spice. Medium acid with a tug of granular tannin on the finish. This is starting to leave it's youthfulness behind and show hints of maturity I(and is less flamboyant than in the past). Drink now- 2027 91

    April 19, 2018 - Nice, brambly aromas of blue, rasp and blackberry and herbs de provence. Medium-full bodied with a moderately think texture and quite a bit of tannin for a Chateauneuf. Open-knit and starting to unwind, this is still relatively youthful, but starting to show the barest hints of maturity. Drink 2018-2026 91+

    June 27, 2016 - VERY ripe nose. Showing more ripeness than most 2012s have shown until now. Slightly medicinal aromas of super ripe grilled cherries and spices, Herbs de Provence. Exotic and wild! Sous bois. Full-bodied and full-throttled. Quite tannic for CdP with medium to med-high acidity. This is really fantastic stuff for the price. Superbly balanced, rich, concentrated but also fresh and lively. This is drinking well now, but should evolve over a number of years and see age 15 with flying colors! 93+ df 9.4

    May 21, 2016 - Young, fresh and already delicious at an early age, this blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre delivers a full bodied, lushly textured, mouthful of kirsch, garrigue and spicy, black raspberry filled pleasure.

    August 3, 2015 - Nice, barnyardy. Tannic and dusty but with some sour cherry fruit. $55 in small nyc restaurant (gentleman farmer). Would be very worth buying retail at $20 or so.
