My Costco had this at a really nice price point. This 2018 is delicious.. lip smacking! Tar, graphite, dark berries, dark chocolate, expresso, black licorice, violets, Rutherford dust, Forrest floor, and eucalyptus. Hopefully, I will get to visit a 15 yr old! — 16 days ago

So young and primary but shows the substance of 18. Nose is so mineral and deep with dark red cherry and mid season cherry and wonderful, expressive minerality. A deep earthy scent as well. Really wonderful depth on this. Palate is juicy and explosive with endless depth and super primary red and black cherry fruit. Super concentrated, structured with a huge, mineral and acid backbone: An epic Dominode. Wait a decade. At least.
Wow on day 2 this is so good. Smoothed out and full of fruit and silky yet substantial tannins. 9.4 to 9.5 overnight. I continue to strongly believe in the 18’s. They are modern day 93’s but better and more overall success across vignerons and appellations.

There’s nothing to say- went to BV in May. It was an amazing experience with a private tasting and tour! My first shipment included a collection of their finest reds! Cheers!! — 23 days ago
Drinking quite nicely. Be sure to decant or pour a half hour early to let it open up. Drink now. Paired with grilled pork tenderloin. — a month ago
Smooth Pinot especially after the bottle opened for a while. Cherry tart at times but really nice smell to the wine — a month ago
Medium golden color. Aromas of mild oak are pronounced. Other aromas and flavors of golden delicious apple, lemon curd, roasted nuts, toast and vanilla are also present. Complex but extremely well balanced. Creamy texture. In the style of white burgundy. High quality. Quite the pleasant surprise. Thanks for sharing, Ron B! — a month ago
Fine village level red, but rather disappointing after their fantastic 1er Cru La Dominode — 4 months ago
Garnet core quite wide brick coloured rim . Needs a bit of time for the funk to blow off then black cherry , touch balsamic mint and spicy red currant , coffee and dried herbs, earl grey tea , slightly musky after a while , really improves with air. On the palate lovely definition and balanced acidity . Fills out well with red and dark fruits , sous bois , herbal touches on the nice refreshing finish . — 4 months ago
