Licorice. A little cinnamon and vanilla. Not overly dry. Thankfully not a fruit forward type of wine, this has character. Served with rack of lamb and brussel sprouts and it paired very well. — 4 months ago
Easy on the wallet, and the taste buds.
A solid Rhone here, with a nose of lilacs and violets.
Lighter body than you may be used to, cassis, boysenberry pie. A touch if heat and a lot of tannin will round this one out.
In my opine for a lot of whine, needs 5 years before drinking for full enjoyment.
Hope everyone is enjoying the day!

2019 vintage. Medium-heavy body and mouthfeel but on the prettier side. Chambord, violets, ripe plum and cherry all jostling for your attentions. Tannins fairly difficult to discern currently. Nicely made. Want more of a traditional CDP outline but think it may take a decade to even open that door and explore. If you’ve got the space and means, pick up 3 bottles. Hit one in the next few months, one in 5-7 years and the last one in 17-20 years as a hard experiment. Zero experience with older vintages of this particular offering and genuinely curious where it may lead. 3.8.23. — 3 months ago
Translucent purple. Nose is crushed strawberries and reapberry leaf. Fruits, herbal and complex. Ripe and yet very well balanced. — 9 months ago
2016 vintage. Soft and indistinctive nose and flavors upon opening and stayed that way for the better part of two hours. Then started to gain substantial weight/heft, and spice complexities on the finish. Opened this waay too early but it lost a coin flip to the 2019 Alain Voge VV Cornas. Picked up a dirty, copper penny note + iodine along the way. 2.26.23. — 3 months ago
Decant at least an hour before serving, and then you’re in for a treat. Powerful southern Rhone shiraz, superb. — a year ago
Nice fruit (not earthy and tobacco) — a year ago
