    January 12, 2020 - Two years ago I commented on signs of evolution including hints of cabbage on the nose. This evolution has got a lot worse with this present bottle. Colour shows a lot of bricking at the rim. The nose is quite porty or maderised with much more marked notes of cabbage. The palate is better but here again the notes of madeira and cabbage are perceptible spoiling some potentially nice sour cherry fruit and other elements. Without the warning signs from my previous bottle I might have noted this one as flawed. I advise people with this wine in their cellars to take a look at one of their bottles. Maybe I got a bad lot albeit from a usually reliable supplier. Close to the threshold of undrinkable.

    December 16, 2019 - This is still a good wine - fair bit of sediment that needs filtering out (may have just been stored improperly). Also, needs a bit of air to integrate but it comes together nicely

    Not overly complex but pretty good syrah notes - requisite bacon fat and pepper are present - with a decent amount of acidity. Definitely not a pop n' pour

    April 27, 2019 - Northern Rhone Dinner at Marc's (DC/Silver Spring MD): Plummy nose. Mostly primary, plum and other black fruit. Light earth starting to poke through. Balanced with solid acidity and grippy tannins. Solid wine, but needed a bit of time to open up.

    February 1, 2019 - not a bad wine, but I had higher expectations. discreet nose and dense but round texture.

    (Delas Frères Hermitage Marquise de la Tourette) Medium red violet color with pale meniscus; ripe berry, port and plum nose; ripe berry, plum and spice palate, a little tight and young yet; medium-plus finish 92+ pts.

    (Delas Hermitage Marquis de Tourette Rouge) A dense and lovely array of roasted nuts and fruits on the nose here. A big, sweet texture, backed up by sufficient structure. In fact this is a very balanced and appealing wine. Lovely core of ripe tannins and correct acidity. A different style to the 1998, but again the quality of the vintage shows.
