    November 18, 2017 - Wow! Red fruits and spice poured from the bottle after popping the cork. Sweet fruit, silky texture, dense and yet weightless. It reminded me of a Chateauneuf-du-Pape from a top vintage, but without the savory element that would have elevated this wine even higher. Still wonderful. I waited ten years to try this, and it was worth it.

    November 11, 2017 - Fantastic wine out the bottle with only 10 min decant. Mixed berries, plum, morning dew on nose. Medium body, jammy, smooth tannins. Minimal oak and licorice. Long finish.

    November 5, 2017 - We had high hopes after reading Tanzer note. Explosive dense aromas, lots of black fruits, kirsch, and cedar. Enjoyable to smell but not as much to drink. Alc heat ruins it. Would rate 90. May be an awkward phase.

    October 18, 2017 - Decanted for 1.5 hours, then drank over 1 hour. Amazing breakfast jam fruit on nose as it was poured into the decanter. When drank, full rich fruit, quite smooth, yet still has time to mature further. Amazing now.

    September 28, 2017 - Decanted for 1.5 hours. In the glass, opaque, deep purplish-red. On the nose, grenache liqueur all the way, and more of the same on the palate. We enjoyed this quite a bit more than the bottle we had in January 2014 - the medicinal notes from that bottle were not present here, and the tannins have largely resolved. With all of that said, this is a full-on in-your-face kind of wine, and it's not going to be for everyone. Right on the edge of too much of a good thing.
