    February 14, 2019 - Very solid wine. Powerful fruit, strong body. Perhaps a little over-ripe, I think that's a vintage characteristic. Drinks well now, might improve, but I have little experience with this type of wine to know that.

    March 7, 2017 - Still with some fine tannins, the fruit is very much alive with raspberry, blackberry flavors, black pepper and spice. Some dried rosemary too.

    March 4, 2017 - Opened up slowly, a bit of a slight oxidised pong after about 1 hour in the decanter. Came back 3 hours later and wow what a great wine. This has developed into a very together wine. Still has some fruit and freshnes but has a lovely complex body and a satisifying moreish finnish. Like always just don't pop and pour. I think it is in it's sweet spot.

    December 22, 2014 - Wow, what a blockbuster for a Cotes du Rhone. The old vines and the source makes the difference between a Rasteau Cotes du Rhone and any other. Big body, gritty tannins, balanced fruit and acidity with the classic dark berry and pepper notes. This wine will go another few years, but I like it now for the fresh fruit character.

    November 11, 2013 - Softening as time goes on, still a good few years in her yet. Dirty when first uncorked, opened to lively fruit, soft tannins and excellent length. Excellent archetypal Rhone.
