    September 7, 2021 - Last bottle of this great QPR CdP drunk with braised pork shoulder. Still lots of fruit plus earthy notes. Gorgeous and for less than $30.

    June 5, 2021 - The current price raises my eyebrows. It is quite good, though. A bit sharp on opening, the wine mellows with time into smooth and rich southern Rhone blend.

    February 12, 2021 - Dark-colored, with some bricking at the edges. Lots of menthol, dried-herbs & garrigue on the nose. Taste of plums, with tinge of bitterness and alcohol (hotness) followed on the palate. Somehow, I don't recall having ever come across notes of "pure/sweet red/dark fruits" (that I've read about in other CT notes) in almost all the 7-8 bottles I've opened across 2 cases. In fact, it wouldn't be far to describe the fruit as a bit stewy; Wife commented that "everything that's not right about wines" was in this bottle... 😅. To be fair, most of the past bottles I've opened were drunk in settings like BBQs or with beer-bar kind of food. Anyway, only a few bottles left (to try)...

    January 11, 2021 - Deep, brickish color. Dried herb and raspberry aromas with red berry and pronounced licorice on the palate. Ripe at the end but most enjoyable early in the drinking cycle when the fruit is more fresh. Do not decant. A few gritty tannins remain. Long in the finish.
