  • A curious nose that immediately leads me to the Rhone; black pepper, cherry, licorice, garrigue, a wisp of smoke, something animal, feral even. Somewhat rustic tannin, like a country wine with great refinement and intrigue. Intense and lasting palate. I could sit with a wine like this for hours.

  • Absolutely beautiful. Consumed over three nights, each showing very well if somewhat differently (less fruit, more flowers and soil by day 3). Bright ruby<light cranberry hue; clear. Somewhat high-toned on PnP, with loam, some EtOH, watermelon hard candy, garrigue and dust. Medium-bodied, red fruited, with meaty, cherry, loamy, toasty notes that emerge by the second glass; adds some weight/texture with air, but always manages a fresh, lively cut.

    Day#2: game notes, rosewater, lilac; acids and tannins more pronounced. Structured, lovely. Long, clean and detailed finish. Finishes with a gentle kiss of warmth. 14,5% abv., thru 2026. highly recommended

    Served non-blind.

  • An interesting nose with exotic scents and a vast palate....well made and worth attention. I wish I could say more...but this was one of those few wines that I found myself with little interest to sit with pen and paper. I simply enjoyed the unique expression of a time and place...and that is something special for any wine that can offer it.

  • Lots of complex fruit and slight spicing with a really nice svelte profile, but also nothing stepping outside that fruit-centric box. Loads of enjoyment as it is a very pretty box.

  • An extremely sophisticated, finessed wine that's like grand cru Burgundy in its svelte proportions and silky texture. But not in complexity or character, as the fruit is pretty simple and one-note and there isn't much else there besides a slight seasoning of cedary oak.
