Tasted like root beer initially, then finished with cloves and blackberries. Great wine awesome with smoked pork loin. — a day ago
The ‘97 Jamet Côte Brune was hauntingly good captivating us all with its kaleidoscope array of aromas. Coal smoke, tar, bacon fat and scorched earth. Ethereal palate with so much depth, complexity and focused acidity. Very long finish. Ridiculously good for the vintage and definitely the best red of the evening. Jamet Côte Brune with age is the truth. — 3 months ago
Paired so deliciously with dark chocolate and sea salt. Really brings the notes out. Overall subtle and smooth @heb #redwine — 4 months ago
Good drinkable Zin with typical notes of tobacco and pepper along with a slight hint of caramel to me. — a month ago

Truth be telling I bought this only because of the label. I was surprised on how much of a good cab this is. Nice oaky fruit taste but not too harsh. If you like your cab a little more on fruit side that this is a good one to choose. — 4 months ago
To receive the edge...
Light shadows in dark
Cast into center stage
Words scurry the lip
Stars align space to Park
Bottled purity in her Cage
Roaring truth Drips
Stung on edge
Beyond depths hold
Her mind waits
Thought brought to ledge
Feelings within fold
Tempering the dates

Magnificent. Pristine bottle, richness and depth yet weightlessly elegant. Did not taste a day over 4-5 years old, possibly younger, absolutely incredible. Yellow tree fruits, gooseberry, lees, wet stones, river water, fines herbs, blossoms, struck rocks, cool verbena, earth. Top form and demonstrated its class with absolute truth. — 2 months ago
Wow. So bright on open. Bam. Nebbiolo spice. Roses.
Palate is so fresh. Cherries. Cherry licorice. Spectacularly delicious.
So old school but a clean old school.
A wine of truth. Of authenticity. Amazing to drink if you love wine.

Opened and poured into a ship decanter for two hours before being returned to the bottle another couple of hours prior to dinner at Le Bouillon. A golden color that seem lighter on the rim. On the nose, this is eminently rustic with stone fruits, wild flower honey, echinacea and butterscotch. On the palate, not nearly as oxidative as the nose would suggest. In fact, this is remarkably fresh with bright apricot and nondescript tropical fruits. Medium-plus acid. The finish is long and somewhat saline. A wine of brilliant texture. A stunning pairing with marinated octopus and was delightful with the other courses of our meal as well. A small portion was left for further evaluation the following day. I am happy to report that it held up very well indeed. The late Serge Hochar once said that his white wines seem to gain freshness with age. The 2005 vintage shows there is likely truth to his assessment. Well cellared examples should drink well for at least another decade. I, for one, look forward to checking in on these for many years to come. — 4 months ago
