2012 Compagnie de l'Hermitage Cuvée Des Moines red. This has shut the f*ck down like a brutal portcullis since tasting with George the Greek in Tain last March. I'll bet this is out like a light for a while. Do not open this for at least another 5 years I'd bet.

Ok this is unbelievable. Texturally almost thick on a good way. As fruity as I would like yet insane balance. Great licorice finish. Just an insane wine. Perhaps my favorite red of the past 12 months. Bought from Fass selections.

Surprisingly open-knit and in a very friendly stage for drinking. This is an elegant wine for Hermitage, middleweight and fairly refined in texture. Still has those aged beefy Hermitage flavors though.

WOTN at first (North Rhone) tasting with the NEWTS. Not a bad drop at all: quite dense, with reticent legs; nose of rich pepper, wild cherries, and liquorice sticks; well balanced but perhaps a little short, with appropriately balanced acidity. Keep for minimum 8 years!

What a showing. Give 30 minutes for the oak to integrate and then you have a dense, rich and ethereal bottle of Hermitage that has 15-20 years ahead of it. Incredible tannins and ripe dense structure.

This is beautiful. Smokey, elegant, complex, so ethereal.
