Concentrated and bold. Almost overpowering. Better the second day- a bit calmer. Overall and impressive wine but needs bold food pairing. — 8 days ago

First, I’d like to thank @Severn Goodwin for this excellent example of Rosé in our bottle exchange.
The nose shows leaner, candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, fine white to grey volcanics, sea spray with candied pink florals.
The palate is; round, lush, juicy and smartly balanced. Classic French Rosé. Ripe with high viscosity. Candied & floral fruits of; strawberries, watermelon, black cherries, raspberries, tangerine, candied rhubarb, amazing powdery chalkiness, white spice w/ a ginger lean, some of the very best fine white to grey volcanics I’ve had, sea spray with candied pink florals. The acidity is a cool, rushing river. The rich, elegant, well polished, lush finishes with excellent minerality that persists equally with lush fruitiness.

Pours inky dark. Big plums and dark berries bouquet. Wow, a big upfront burst of plums, tobacco and chocolate. Then a silky dryness into different layers of cherry, raspberries. Lush and layers of flavors. Then the sweet cherries come in at the end. Layers! — a month ago
Topping the night off with the pinnacle. A Grange from 1999, made during an era that it was still produced in a regular bottle and a reasonable price. It was a mature version of the Saint Henry we had earlier that evening. Extreme dense in flavor, powerful and strong oak vanilla notes. Dark fruit soaked in cigar box and oh so smooth. 21 years old. Don’t take too much time drinking it and don’t decant it. It peaks in about 30-60 minutes. — 14 days ago

Best cab I’ve had all year. This smells very fruity and acidic but is incredibly smooth and subtle on the palette with a full bodied finish. — a month ago
