    April 20, 2012 - This remains a wonderful wine that astounds those who drink it. It is very dark in color, full bodied, much more so than the typical Rhone from either country. It is a complex wine with full bore fruit, mostly dark berries to start and a very toasty spicy long finish. It has layers of flavor that surprise and delight and structure and supple tannins to add further pleasure.

    December 22, 2011 - dark fruit with silky mouthfee. Blueberry and blackberry followed by spice. Long finish, soft supple tannins. Easy to match with food. A keeper.

    November 11, 2011 - popped and poured: tight, very dark, dark fruit, soft supple tannins, blueberry and blackberry flavors, some pepper in background, long finish. Will try letting next bottle open longer before drinking. Splendid wine.
