    January 23, 2014 - It's been a couple years since I have tasted this wine. It is maturing very well. Big berry flavors pop, with a very nice finish. Glad I have a couple left.

    December 28, 2012 - It has been over a year since I last tasted the 12 UVE. It has blossomed with a great cherry flavor and a very smooth finish. I am glad I have 3 bottles left.

    September 4, 2012 - A very nice wine. Still seems quite young with a tight nose and taste. Decanted for two hours but did not develop until another two hours after decanting. Once fully opened the nose had fantastic notes of leather, dill, vanilla, cedar and black cherries. The initial flavor followed the nose but the mid-palate was the one flaw this wine had. It was not completely hollow but it was lacking. The finish was fantastic with everything the nose had plus a great spice. The wine was not hot and it had a medium mouthfeel. A nice little wine!

    June 20, 2010 - Well, this sample was not so exciting. I was expecting a good modern tuscany one but thw cork was hard to take it out, a little bit dry. When i take out, the aromas was a little bit oxidative, but on the mouth you can fell that is good one. I hope that another bottle that i have will be better.

    June 9, 2010 - Nice crimson red. Crab-apple with a hint of vanilla on the nose. Very light bodied, well-suited to summer. Adequate tannins with a high mouth structure and excellent acids. A light touch of red fruit. Not as brooding as you would expect of a Chateauneuf du Pape imitation. There are several levels of flavor and it reminds me a bit of Ducru Beaucallou, albeit not nearly as high quality.
