This was spectacular. Singing. Opened very closed with a orangy, salty, savoury character. With time, the wine broadened, becoming much sweeter, with wonderful meaty, black and red cherry, spice and salt flavours. It was Rhone at its best. — 4 days ago

After visiting a few years ago and picking up a few bottles, I wanted to see how this was showing since many ‘14s are in a great spot right now.
This was arguably better at pop and pour than it was an hour in. Very perfumed with sweet baking spices (vanilla, cinnamon) and baked mixed berry pie (lots of sweet blueberries and blackberries). Dusty too with cassis and graphite. In time, it turned more red fruit dominant on the palate alongside sandalwood, cocoa, clay and spiced black cherry liqueur. Rich, smooth but enough structure to keep improving. A friend wanted a juicy, balanced Napa cab and this fit the bill nicely. — 20 days ago
Enjoyable juicy cab, very smooth, great with steak or a meat and cheese plate — 5 days ago
Really lovely, soft, fruity and dry Arneis. Good for quaffing and with food — 7 days ago
Like my last rating apparently, this is a denser, weightier Jacquere than I am used to. I like it - just seems more into Altesse territory. Lovely fruit, melon, lemongrass, mineral finish. — 13 days ago
