    November 24, 2017 - D'amblé, je dois reconnaitre que j'ai peu d'attirance pour les vins issus de Zinfandel. Je n'ai pas eu de véritable coup de coeur encore, ni du coté des Primitivo d'ailleurs.
    Bon ceci dit, cette bouteille a été consommé sur quelques jours en accompagnement de différents plats. Seul, le vin me laisse une impression de lourdeur et de chaleur. En accompagnement de pâtes avec sauce tomate, viande dont saucisse italienne en morceaux, le vin était beaucoup mieux.
    Apparence rouge grenat, encre, très dense, reflets bleutés.
    Nez très ouvert, raisins secs, prune, tabac sucré.
    En bouche, tanins un peu carrés (malgré l'age de la bouteille), de la chaleur et de la sucrosité, beaucoup de fruits cuits. Persistance moyenne sur la noix de grenoble. Le lendemain, bu un peu frais, saveurs métalliques (qu'est-ce que c'est ?!).
    Avec certain plat, peu être convenable.
    Pour amateur de vin costaud .

    December 9, 2015 - Tasted blind. Translucent ruby color turning crimson at the rim with a transparent edge. The nose is sharp and tangy with notes of cherry, raspberry, currants, chocolate, cola and a spice that can be persistently felt. The palate is medium bodied with bright, heightened acidity and a silky texture. Flavors of currants, plum, raspberry, espresso, smoke and meat are acutely concentrated that produces a long, zingy finish with mineral-laced tannin. At this point, it seems that the wine has developed considerable age, and has reached its peak. It should be drunk NOW but could probably keep until 2019. 91+

    August 30, 2015 - Romance in a glass . Elegant nose of dark chocolate and tones of blue berries. Mild tannis, cocoa, ink, dark cherry notes. Long finish. This wine is still humming (surprisingly). Glad I have one more bottle.
