Elegant, well aged, showing eucalyptus on the nose with some cedar box. In the glass, tart red berries, teeth staining tannins and acidity that leaves you salivating.

Sneaky wine that goes down too easy.

Really liked this wine - thought it aged well. Great balance, nose: eucalyptus, spice box, sweet blackberries. In the glass, black currants, eucalyptus and a touch of cranberries. Tons of acid.

I don’t quite follow the Garagiste story of this vintage, but glad to have it for $20. Feels like it’s on the down slope of life, but still lovely at 12y. + short ribs = yum.

Lovely bottle but fell apart the next day, should have drank it all in one night? Do aged bottles not last after opening? Already on the verge of oxidation?

Coffee, black currant, some tertiary aromas (earth, mushrooms). The palate is more on the length than on the width. Currant again, raspberry, loads of acidity. The finish is quite long with a nice fruity finish. Nice wine but the nose is much more appealing than the palate, creating expectations that aren't met. Is this because of the vintage?

Color of dark burgundy with some orange tone on the rim. Nose is nice with dried sweet strawberries, spice, hickory, some leather, mineral, cherry, all morphed together. Taste of still very solid acidity and tannins, chewy, fresh grapes, a bit zesty, a bit bitter, slightly sweet, and quite tasty. Aftertaste shows some more oak, mineral note, peppery, and some more ripe grapes. Very good to enjoy now.

Smooth, approachable and not one to let sit around much longer. So drink up!

Color of thick blood, cloudy, with grapefruit hue on the rim. Nose of very nice dried strawberry, vanilla, plum, aldehyde, leather, and a touch of mineral. Taste of still solid but polished tannins, vanilla, milky, spice, flowering note, cherry, oaky, and zest note. Round and polished. Aftertaste is long with nice tannins, cherry jam, some flowering note, right amount of zest, clean and full of flavors. Enjoy her now.
