    October 25, 2019 - Thick & chewy, perhaps could have used more tannin for balance, so drink em now. Nice get for 17 bones tho.

    April 17, 2016 - No formal note taken as this was toward the end of the night but this is a HUGE wine. Super dark and extracted color. Blackberry jam and just a ton of dark fruits with earth and spice. Big tannins and alcohol but neither out of balance. Impressive wine although not necessarily my style.

    January 4, 2014 - Near pitch-black color in the glass with a dark purple edge, blackberry-like. This is rich and slathering and with refined, soft tannins (to the extent you can feel them at all through the gloss of the fruit). I would probably have pegged this for a syrah rather than a petite; it really tastes very syrah-like. It has a bit of spiriting warmth which at 16.1% (!) isn't all that surprising, but you don't feel the stiffness on the palate. Still, this was too monolithically fruity for me, too much like a reduction sauce.

    May 2, 2012 - Somewhat softer than other Babylons, both on the nose and the tongue. While that may be classically better, it tasted flatter to me and less fierce. Earthy nose, big tannins and dark berries in the taste. Very good, of course, but as I said, flatter than prior versions.

    December 6, 2011 - An Evening With Abe Schoener (Union Square Wines (NYC)): Last of the 3 Babylons. Redder fruit than Androkteinos. Lush. Meaty but also nice mineral note. Smoother. Best of the Babylons.
