    November 24, 2016 - Plums, strawberries and a whack of eucalyptus on the nose, and a blast of pure red fruit and acidity on the palate. This is drinking very well from magnum but can hold in this format for another decade at least. Really good with food.

    August 24, 2015 - Served out of magnum and drinking perfectly. Riper fruit for sure but balanced, with a great minerality and wonderful acidity. Very pure and enjoyable, and paired wonderful with our dinner of grilled cumin lamb..tannins resolved

    April 11, 2015 - Had forgotten about this wine,but really dining in its prime now. Acid balanced, tannins mellow. Much more in harmony than 6 years ago.

    December 14, 2009 - I'm told that because of the synthetic cork, this should be opened on the early side, so I opened it. Much too early, at least from the wine's perspective (rather than the cork). The '99 Brezeme still stands out in my memory as a junior Cote Rotie, with amazing, soaring aromatics, textbook Syrah blue/purple fruit and violets. I so hoped that the '05 would be like that . . . but it was not. Seems like there is so much potential under the surface. The palate is brooding, the acidity high. Did not get any more charming overnight. Right now, it's like trying to enjoy a Tchaikovsky symphony, from the other side of a cement wall.

    September 6, 2008 - Well, this has settled some in a year, the acidity seems just right, not as angry as a year ago. The fruit is pretty ripe, and for the first hour or so that is pretty much it, ripe blackberry fruit framed by the tangy acids. With air a graphite mineral edge shows up and makes it more interesting. Perfect tannins too, noticeable without being astringent. Enjoyed this a lot.
