Dark ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented cherry and black raspberry scents are complemented by suggestions of exotic spices, violet and licorice. Supple and broad in the mouth, offering intense red and blue fruit liqueur, spicecake, vanilla and violet pastille flavors that become sweeter as the wine takes on air. The floral note carries strongly through the expansive, spice-tinged finish, which shows excellent clarity and velvety, slow-building tannins. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019)

Absolutely delicious traditional Cote rotie, yes a big vintage but with an hour or two of air it’s actually accessible. Violets and purple berries up front with game, olive and dried herbs, plush texture and the tannins start to really creep in towards the end signaling this may be about to shut down for a while.

A stunning nose, wafts of deli-sliced ham mingling with ripe fruits, and a near-black dark color had me primed for a beastly wine - this did not disappoint. We opened it too early but all the elements are there: juicy plum, chalkboard, black pepper and soft tannins reminiscent of dark roast coffee. Looking forward to trying this again in a few years.
