    April 17, 2018 - Red fruit, tobacco, lovely perfume and some herbs. The cork looked questionable but the wine drank a la pointe. Superb with our roast herbal chicken. Great buy for $12.41 / bottle back in 2010.

    March 4, 2018 - This wine seemed to have a cork issue and was a little off, so I won’t score it. It was a little vegetal -especially in the opening - with notes of herbs, thyme, sage and pine needles. It did blow off with some time, and was much better with food -especially our roast herbal chicken wih thyme, sage and rosemary. (Roast chicken is the best pairing for this wine, to me).

    I think it was just a bottle issue, as the cork seemd to have lost part of its seal. Will try another bottle soon.

    July 17, 2016 - Bit of funk on open, but it fades in about fifteen minutes; cherry, graphite, bit of leather. Medium bodied, some bright fruit, but lots of earthy, woody elements. Medium-low tannin, medium acid. Slightly bitter finish. Good.

    March 1, 2016 - Graphite, wood, earth, a bit of bitterness on the finish. Very old school. Nice structure. Improves with several hours of air.
