    May 10, 2019 - Drank at BYO evening at District. The other bottle bought was a Clos De Pape 2006 white. Both were very high alc - the white was 15%- Too much. This was the more elegant of the two. Dark fruits, not much secondary tobacco yet - ageing well. Some sort of licorice and vanilla there. I’m liking these before too late on the drinking window.

    March 29, 2019 - Tar, charcoal, tobacco, plum, herb, star anise, licorice. Finishes with strong vanilla bean. Heavy alcohol keeps this from being great. Will try 2nd bottle in 3 to 5 years.

    March 26, 2019 - Versatile for pairing, you can pull a lot of different nuances out of it with various foods. This was the “Swiss army knife” of wines in a tasting dinner tonight.

    Ripe fruit, soft tannin, easy drinking but not simple. This is, in a nutshell, the total package. If you can find it at a fair price, buy without hesitation.

    March 20, 2019 - Wow, what a difference an hour makes. Ok out of the gate but starts singing after 45 minutes. Can’t wait to see how these develop. Enjoyed with Moroccan chicken.
