Concentrated and bold. Almost overpowering. Better the second day- a bit calmer. Overall and impressive wine but needs bold food pairing. — 8 days ago
Powerful and bright. Excellent lunch wine on the porch with heavy hors d’oevres. — a month ago
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

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.

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
