Seemingly tired when first poured, this kept getting tighter and weightier in the decanter over the course of the evening. And the color got more vibrant too. After 2 hours, the nose showed pungent kirsch and sharp roasted herbs. Tight, crisp, intense flavors of spiced cherry and gravelly minerals. Long finish with a bit of tannin and crisp acids. This wine will last at least 5 years, maybe more, and continue to improve.

Perhaps my favorite CDr not cheap but can hold its own against higher priced chateau neuf du pape. Vibrant fruit,white pepper and structure

Chateau des Tours. Aftermath of an epic Halloween-barn-party. More of the body needed to handle the spice.

Love this! Plenty of cherry, balsam, garrigue. Long finish with a note of burnt sugar.
