Nice, rich maybe still heavy as it is in its youth as most of Chateauneuf - a great classic and well known wine - needs time to get rounder - little spicy notes it is an intense wine - see you in a few years

Really beautiful - showing its age but still vibrant red fruit and cherry liqueur.

Lighter in body than expected. Good plum and black pepper notes.

With the steak it paired well. The nose had that Rhone, properly aged smell that I aim for. A little thin on the back end, but not overly hot either. The label wasn't lined up with the cartouche which bugs me. Probably why it ended up in Santa Ynez:)

Ripe red berries followed by a big finish with hints of black pepper and black olives. Needs more time in bottle.
