    December 28, 2019 - Interesting wine. A mixture of old world and new world. a bit more heat than I would like, but overall a nice wine.

    July 22, 2019 - Dark red/ruby color, Wet animal fur and some blood on the nose. The wine is a bit rustic with some tannins still evident. Has potential but needs more time.

    February 3, 2019 - Luscious in the glass but not an archetypical CDP. Had to reach to find the heat and minerality. But so so smooth and drinkable right now.

    October 30, 2018 - Fourth time with this wine since 2013. Still a bit of a hot mess, but not as disjointed or hot or black tarry as before. But the heat of the vintage comes through to the point that it undoes whatever fruit and subtlety is actually buried in there somewhere. Regardless, after a couple hours open it was better (decant!) and was enjoyable in a chilly fall evening.

    June 15, 2018 - One fella marked the wine as a "cocktail wine" built for RMP and I am not going to disagree. Quite smooth and luscious out of the bottle with a soft finish and lack of biting tannin. Quite easy to sip and savor and for salmon, a well balanced option. Would I suspend drinking these? NO--- I would move the marker to "drink now" and over the next 5 years.
