Deep seductive blue and black fruit nose. Rich, plush dark fruit with a vegetal note. Med full bodied. Luxurious and harmonious. Sweet but with enough fine tannin to provide structure. Still very primal but will develop over next 10+ yrs. yumster. — 6 months ago

Wow, lots of old-school feel here. Really great care with the use of whole cluster, it really adds the right dimension without detracting at all. Traditional, rustic, and completely wholesome. Fruit leather, crushed berries, roasted plum, roast meat, vast array of herbal and garrigue deliciousness, it’s quite stony from front to back. Quite happy with this one — 10 months ago

Dinner with a friend, brief notes this evening.
Prior notes still apply:
Nose has warmed Granny Smith apple with butter.
Palate had serious zingy acidity to start, but since subsided, now a combo of yellow/green apple, water chestnut and a minerally honey.
Last bottle, amazing, still has many years ahead!
48 Hour Update:
Nose has fried green apples, brown butter, toasted honey, caramel candy, dried apricots, cold green herbs and white flowers.
Palate has tart yellow apple, caramel sauce, saturated oak board, honey, water chestnuts, tart peach jam, Jasmine flowers, with medium acidity and intense finish, lightly drying, very powerful.
We should have opened all the prior bottles two days in advance, this is just approaching the pinnacle of its enjoyment, wow. Enjoy now or the next 2-4 years, from proper storage. Updating from 92 to 94 points. — 3 months ago
