    July 25, 2020 - Decanted about 2 hours. Not enough for this bottle, it continued to open up over the following 2 hours, best just before gone. This one probably needed to sit about 4 hours.

    June 17, 2020 - Outstanding. Needed two hours to open up. Amazing balance, tannins are there, but behind remarkable currants and other dark berries. You can taste the terroir. Big, bold, full bodied. Loved it.

    June 12, 2020 - Crystal clear garnet color. Spicy jammy earthy nose. Someone said freshly raked soil. Dark fruit, lingers forever throughout the palate. Perfectly balanced.

    January 6, 2020 - Popped and poured into decanter. This bottle was ready to go and stayed quite nice for an hour or so, but shy of previous top bottles.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Pegau Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée de Capo) This was nice but I have a feeling this wine was closed down . . .or more. Great nose of dark kirsch, horsey barnyard and some brett. But there was also a stewed element that also showed on the palate. Great energy in the mouth with nice concentration and elegance. Especially for a wine this massive. Long fruit-soaking finish. After around 35 minutes this wine shut down very hard and was acrid on the finish and all the fruit was hidden in a cloak of tannins and acid. There was a distinctly roasted element that really started to strut too that was worrisome. Maybe closed . . . maybe a slightly off bottle . . who knows?
