Slightly muted. Do not think it is corked, but not as expressive as I hoped and as previous notes indicate.

Grapefruit caramel, orange at the rim. A touch oxygen.

As goth in residence I should alert you that aside from inevitable pheromones it is intellectual wine acumen that revs my motor. Ipso facto if brains turn you on, this Bandol will seduce you with its thoughtful rigor—it has its balance and complexity fine-tuned. Then pure sensual attributes (silky rhubarb/peach Melba joy/is that a bay leaf? And omg perhaps even a hint of allspice) are all guest speakers at the symposium. This wine has deep thoughts but is perky-goth enough to dance til at least 3am. Daylight may be too much though.

A rich salmon pink color. Alpine strawberry and brightness. Very good rose

This is no frivolous poolside sipper—a traditional Bandol benchmark, savory and dry, intense and layered flavors keep deepening and integrating with age. Beautiful burnished copper / salmon color, warming flavors of herbs and flowers complement ripe red berries and pit fruit. Perfect for the transitional season between winter and spring

Full bodied rosé. Pomelo, strawberry, guava, roses, garrigue. Spicy too. Nice!

deep burnt orange, reminiscent of a sunset; strawberry, peach, wet stones, garrigue, and floral notes; medium+ body, dry, zippy acidity, 14% ABV; blend is majority Mourvèdre but also contains Cinsault and Grenache, short maceration on the skins, fermented at low temperature, aged in stainless steel; the estate has been owned by the Portalis family since before the French Revolution, a standard bearer for Bandol, a Neal Rosenthal import; $30

Consistent. These are better with age. But still yummy.
