2010 Awesome nose, notes of black olive, tobacco, smoke. Fresh on the palate - dark with great acidity. Begs for food.

One of the best wines from my birth year I've ever had, with some of my favorite space aliens. 1987.

2008. En Demi Muid bottling. In a great place, showing wonderful acidity to balance the notes of bright red and black fruit, garrigue, and peppery spice.

Enjoyed this in the tasting room and now. This wine has soft aromas and flavors and it paired nicely with our roasted chicken dinner.
