It took two bottles but here we are. This is in the zone. Don’t hold. 2019 is the end.

Fresh games blue fruit. A lean, bright edge with some tang- then quite tart fruit. Good balance. A leaner, fresher CNdP.

Deep and complex with focused blue fruit, garrigue, stony and almost smoky. Beautiful complexity and definitely showing some secondary notes, but the acidity (at least of this bottle) was pretty high still and didn't start to integrate until 4 hours in the decanter. Plenty of life left to hold onto bottles for 5-10 years.

Concentrated, ripe blue and black fruit. Soft, fleshy texture. Cracked pepper and spice. Clean earth. Drying flower petal. Beginning to develop secondary character behind adolescent acid. This was in a good spot and has miles ahead of it. Pretty outrageous stuff.

Grenache is coming through pretty strong in this one, but the backbone is there. Needs a few more years.

Mellow sweet fruit, a baby yet, not too impressive though.
