Nez de mures, prunes, poivre. Une bouche de belle texture et belle densité, c'est fin, frais, des tannins assez assouplis, soyeux, très long, pur délice. 93+
Nose of dark currant, pepper, plum. The palate is of such a great density and texture as well s being fresh with silky tannins, very long finish, gorgeous. — 6 days ago
Terra orca is right! The earth is coming at me and I’m seeing red. But not the red of fury, the red of passion, the red of pleasure, and the red of desire. One sip of this and desire for the pleasure of passion from this wine endures. The palate parties with minerals. — 3 days ago
So...I had a birthday a couple weeks back, due to scheduling my regular bottle finishing team wasn't available until now, so we're finally doing it up in my grand, unique style.
Notes possibly tomorrow, scores honestly tonight.
Nope...Kinda fell apart overnight, funky plum notes today.

Had this at Carretta on the Gulf with the Huyck’s. — 22 days ago
Simply put, the best $20 bottle of wine I’ve had in a very long time, maybe ever￼. 80% petite rouge, 20% other grapes like fumin, mayolet, and doucet. The nose was tremendous, rising from the glass like perfume, elegant but dense and persistent. Reminded me of a 1er red burgundy meets aged Barolo nose and palate…tertiary red cherry and berries, crushed dried flowers, subtle sandalwood spice, really, really complex! Age your Torrette! — 8 days ago
It’s Beaux Frères, so of course it’s good Pinot Noir. But perhaps this bottle could use some age. The nose is perfect for Pinot Noir, full of cherry. And the palette starts out great, with lots of fruit. But the finish has a small amount of harshness and acidity that will likely disappear with age. — 9 days ago
