    August 10, 2019 - Thus wine has aged well. Powerful tannins, but not harsh. Telltale anis/licorice notes, expansive bouquet and on lots of blackberry. Worked well with a spicy grilled pork tenderloin. Sad to be down to my last bottle - this has years of life left, and no sign of decline.

    August 10, 2019 - Drinking beautifully. Complex full fruit and structured but integrated notes of mineral and leather.

    July 14, 2019 - Drank from magnum. Is beautiful now and could survive at least another 5 years in magnum.

    May 30, 2019 - similar to my 7/25/18 note. Fruit is full but I don't think the wine is that much fun to drink, at least for me

    April 16, 2019 - Served blind. A dark purple /ruby. I remember thinking this was a "spicy mother f*cker". Lots of chocolate with time too. In its drinking window. Served by SH with JO.

    (Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape) Very slightly cloudy cherry red color with pale meniscus; bretty, herbaceous, olive nose; somewhat mature, stemmy, herbaceous, dried berry, pepper and smoke palate; medium finish 91+ pts.

    (Clos des Papes Chateauneuf du Pape) A fine, cherry red hue. On the nose there are some dark, brooding fruits, smoky-roasted cherries, but otherwise this wine is giving little away at the moment. It has a great presence on the palate, with lots of weight and a firm, grippy, masculine tannic structure. Very decent acidity too. Richly endowed, youthful but withdrawn, with a composition bordering on monolithic, this wine needs time, but it was worthwhile taking this first look.

Rockss and Fruit

    (Clos des Papes) Great nose of crushed hot pebbles, cherry liquor, kirsch, wild berries, smoke, little bit of an exotic tomato hint. Elegant but with sweet concentrated fruit and tremendous ripeness. All perfectly ripe red fruits. Seamless yet spreading. Great acid and serious stony complex minerals on the finish. As Yaacov has repeatedly said this is one of the most Burgundian CDP's out there. This was singing on this particular night.

    (Clos des Papes Châteauneuf-du-Pape) Beautiful, aromatic nose with hints of Asian spice; deep, tasty, brambly fruit with soft tannins
