Classic crozes. Not trying to be something it isn’t. Just a great example of what it is.
Nose is fresh hand crushed blueberries and wild blackberries. As this opens Gorgeous lilacs.
Palate is juicy. Not heavy like many 15s.

Nose is gorgeous game. Sexy as hell. ... as it opens gorgeous lavender.
Palate is grapy in a great way. Great balance. Fresh crushed in your mouth blackberries. Not super dark or brooding. Nice grippy texture. Super fresh.
Long finish with some blackberry licorice.
So young. This could be 95ish good in 5 years. An elegant wine.

Light and easy going with a bit of leather. Kind of like that s&m club in downtown Cleveland. — 4 months ago
Loved it. Very vibrant fruit forward wine, very little finish which is what I’d expect, but heavy black currant and blackberry flavors while still being incredibly light.

Maybe there aren’t any bottles floating around anymore, but I got lucky and snagged one. This is super juicy Tannat, which is not something I ever thought I’d say or hear. Dried cherries, super ripe plums, some underripe blueberry, a bit of funk on the nose. Graphite and leather too. There’s still great acidity which makes this gulpable. it’s an interesting wine, this mixture of dried fruits but bright and juicy acidity feels like it should be two different wines, but it’s not in any way disjointed or threadbare. It’s just got serious backbone, and long tannins. Like a northern Rhône Syrah without the floral aspects. It’s slightly meaty and spicy when first opened. The empty glass is restrained but all violet. I wish I could’ve had this a couple of years ago but it’s still really lifted yet soft tonight. — 10 months ago

This is having a great moment. Smoke, olives, dark berry fruit, blueberry. Huge granite and deep mineral tones. Juicy, so fresh, deep and concentrated with outrageous purity and a long finish. Loads of medium to dark berry fruit and really really long finish and also serious structure. What a showing. This has got 15+ years ahead of it but is fun today. These wines will last a long time. — 6 months ago
