Much too young... Nice minerality on the nose with gun powder and crushed rocks along a bit fruit and raisin. Strong acid backbone, strong tannins and a somewhat astringent finish with fruit and a drying impression. Too young yes, but very nice potential! — 9 days ago
Always a personal favorite. Tar, coconut, blackberry and cocoa powder. Massive wine, but graceful power with still teeth tingling tannins. Almost like a tannat chew. Only had one of these. Will be hunting up another one if I can find another ‘13. — 7 days ago
Over delivers for the price. Classic berry and cocoa powder cab, not overpowering in any way. — 10 days ago
The 16 vintage is a stunner. Presents butterscotch, hay, figs and hazelnuts on the nose. Palate is dominated with overripe lychees. The oak is in the foreground, and with cellaring, should fall back. Acids are soft and combine with the oak to give a lush, rounded texture. This goes toe-to-toe with Aubert, and holds it own.
Powder room update - With the plumber dispatched, I worked with my tiling guy to bring this home. It’s an unusual sink, so wanted to show you how it works. The water needs to hit perpendicular to the stone, then, it works like a charm.

Color of dark ruby, with a bit purple hue on the rim, a bit cloudy. Nose of cherry jam, oak, roasted red pepper, peppery, hot pepper, and a bit oak. Taste of some hot pepper powder, low tannins, quite spicy, wood chip, some grapes, subtle sweetness, and a bit tobacco leaves. Aftertaste of some more hotness, sweetness, and ripe grapes note. Spicy wine. — 12 days ago
