    September 25, 2021 - From Magnum, decanted several hours

    This was originally intended to be a birthwine to last 21 years; keeping an eye on the notes below made me suspect it wouldn't make it to the finish line. Hence I decided to open it and repurpose it as a celebration of teenager-dom

    N -spicy, cocoa, and a bit of heat. from some reason the nose reminds me of Christmas (perhaps a fruit cake?)
    M - deep dark fruit, coffee, licorice. per the patriarch 'chewy, big and somewhat extracted'.

    Frankly I found it tiresome, and I agree with BurgundyAl below, I see no upside to holding this.

    While it was nice to sample this, I arrived at the same conclusion 5 years ago after tasting this same wine out of 750cc. Probably I should have sold it.

    Though I must say, some of the Napa fans at the table were less disappointed than I. Perhaps as solace the patriarch added it was 'an absolute pleasure to drink'. Having said that the magnum went unfinished.

    Unlike the score-whore I dont put a ton of stock in the critics. I must say that I agree that RP100 is wildly off the mark here (IMHO).

    April 2, 2021 - I bought this a decade a go and have been waiting patiently for it. Decanted for almost two hours. It is balanced and smooth, but didn’t wow me like many great Rhones before it.

    February 11, 2021 - There are great wines, then there are really great bottles of wines. This is the latter. We've been tracking this wine through other's reviews to determine when we should open. Bob's 65th birthday today seemed like a great time to open the 1st of three bottles that we brought back from Domaine du Pegau over 10 years ago. It's big, bold, powerful and all things wonderful. Went excellent with our grilled tomahawk ribeye and brown & wild rice mix. We could get into all the flavor nuances, but not tonight.

    November 1, 2020 - Decanted 4 hours. Not much nose either before or after decant, but palate was nice and smooth.
