Very small production. Less than 80 cases produced. Cloudy garnet color. Very stemmy and green on the nose. Tart red cherry and dried herb. Elevated acidity. Drinking nicely.

Still tightly wound and youthful, but sooo promising. Tart red berries and sun drenched raspberries, spicy minerals and faint vegetal notes bring complexity to this understated style of wine. Structured for the long haul. 93+

Pinot Noir grafted on Cabernet Sauvignon rootstock. Meaty, but very polished, with a solid core of pomegranate and black cherry fruit. Fewer than 2,000 bottles produced.

Really great bottle. Just kept getting better and better with air...and then it was gone!

Rough and tumble, in a pleasing way, blue fruits and glorious acidity. But screeching VA until it was decanted.

First time, when Clos Saron does not deliver to the full. Still, a cool and individual bottling, but the VA-level is bothering.
