    November 1, 2017 - Thank you Schlaepdog, Absolutely right. Opened my last bottle tonight because of your review.
    To late I'm afraid.

    June 8, 2017 - Very earthy wine. Nose is all earth and funk. As other tasters have noted, this bottle was not thin or watery, but in the medium body spectrum with decent weight. Flavors were predominantly earthy clay, but not exactly unpleasant, with cherry emerging mid-palate before more terroir dominates the finish. The earth components were balanced much better with food, duck confit with Bing cherry demi-glacé in particular, not as good on its own. Mature, drink soon before the rest of the fruit fades.

    October 8, 2016 - Not going to knock your sox off, but good drinking. Holding up well, really nice balance and enough acidity to make it a great compliment to food, but drink up.

    (Clos de l'Oratoire Châteauneuf du Pape) An attractive nose, herby, slightly stony, well defined. Some appeal on the palate, sweetly fruited but nicely poised with good grip. Lots of character here, a well polished style. A somewhat more ripe and chewy character on the finish, where the tannins are a touch more prominent, but still very good potential here.
