    September 22, 2019 - First time trying this wine. Bought the bottle 6 years ago and it’s been sitting in our cellar. Brief decant. Not much on the nose, even after some coaxing. Some red fruit on the palate, but straightforward and not very sophisticated. I’m disappointed having paid $90 for this, and letting this age for 10 years. Tastes more like a $30 wine. What am I missing here?

    August 31, 2019 - Loved this. Medium bodied. Lots of bright sweet cherry flavors; a hint of minerality. Elegant and so well balanced. Terrific.

    August 17, 2019 - From a half bottle. Sweet red fruit nose, plum and dark cherry palate with some cedar and spice notes. Long finish.

    August 10, 2019 - From Magnum. Decanted about 2 hours. Very dark purple. Blueberries, earth and forest floor on the nose. On the palate very smooth and mouth coating. Some heat, not much fruit, short finish. Nice but not very interesting. Perhaps the magnum needed more time. This wine was totally blown away by the 2009 Mas de Boislauzon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée du Quet which we drank along side.

    August 10, 2019 - At 10 years old this is quite advanced in colour midway between ripe red plum and garnet. Quite spicy in the nose. Full of red leather, sour cherry, dried cranberry, pencil shavings, camphor, dried garrigue - especially bay leaves - and just an overall lifted freshness. A definite licorice note develops with time in the glass. Lush palate. Very round and full with gobs of sweet dried red fruits. Quite spicy on the palate as well. Awesome fruit extract! There is quite a bit of depth and complexity here. Finishes crisp and spicy with lingering dried red fruit flavour replays. Tannins are basically gone - just the slightest hint on the teeth. Beautiful wine! 95 points easy!
