I’d forgotten just how solid this stuff is. So good. Lots happening here and while this 2016 is drinking really well as is I sense that in some time all the pieces will round together into a more harmonious experience that will be a knockout. — 4 months ago
The 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel from Tablas Creek was a tough act to follow, but this elegant Rhône blend from Sonoma just did that.
The nose was quite similar with aroma of blue fruits and earthy elements with hint of violet, it was the palate that set it apart: soft, complex and deep, with great texture and beautiful acidity that adds the tension. Elegant and seamless.
