Gorgeous color, and an interesting play on the nose I can’t quite identify. Lovely complexity and length. It’s a decent sipper, but would probably be amazing with something earthy like mushrooms or truffles. Maybe a nice mushroom duxelles over a filet mignon for bringing out additional subtleties. — a year ago
Creme brûlée is dominant. There’s a beautiful lilt on the tongue. It’s a little darker than I expect. The nose and flavor are heavenly. Vanilla, nutmeg, creme, butter, smooooooooooooth tannins, all create a wonderful playtime in the mouth. 2015 is a brilliant wine you need to buy and drink immediately. — 2 years ago
I’m sure there’s something missing or off with this wine, but there’s not a speck of an idea what it could be. The brilliance lingers for the duration of a nice meal. — a year ago
Wonderful complexity changing over the consumption of the bottle, and always a good change. — 2 years ago
Great fruity nose, cherries and plums, less on the palate. Tannins are slightly harsh. Color is darker than I’d expect. — 2 years ago
Tobacco and plums are the major flavors. Good fall or winter wine. — 4 years ago

I read Ned Grey Creed’s review and had to try it. I might add it’s more like the difference between friends and good friends. Friends help you move. Good friends help you move...
...bodies. This is a good friend.
In my list of best wines under $50, this one is at the top. In my list of best wines under $100, easily in the top 3. I bought it knowing CNDP has a standard to maintain, but at the price, I didn’t expect quite this level of complexity, long finish, and sikiness in the tannins. I went back to the store and bought the last three they had. I tend to fall in the high dollar Margaux camp, but this can give any of them a serious run for their money. — 2 years ago
I never had the experience of what a real “silky” tannin was. This changed my impression of where a wine can go. — 2 years ago
