A very deep and intense nose with black pepper, blood, gnarly plum. Profound and fragrant. This is still really young. In a decade this will be open but just wow right now for potential.

M’s bday dinner (7/12). Tasted blind. Bright tawny color. Has good weight but suspect it’s older. Exotic powerful nose. Everyone smiles, this is special. Notes of red cherries, Asian spice, rose petals and dark earth. Flamboyant in the mouth. “Amazing” underlined 2x in my notes. Memorable. We started enjoying this after 4 hours of air was given to it and even 3 hours after that this was still singing. Guessed 69 La Tache. This ended up being my favorite wine of the evening. The emotional impact was more than the other 2 slightly older DRCs. There was a long, mixed debate on this though.

A wonderfully complex nose. Resolved fruit with soft blossomy dark cherry, iodine and soy and pretty faded roses. A lovely seductive midpalate. Yum.

Where do you begin? An entrancing nose- dark seductive fruit with spice and a supple freshness. Absolutely glorious on the palate with a velvety texture and a really complex yet delicious finish. This goes on and on and is utterly absorbing. What a treat and decades ahead.

This might be the best thing i tried this year. Had it back in January... this means i have like 9 months to find something better!!

Earthy, with rose petal and dried herb notes. Lasting tannin makes for good length on the finish.

Dark blue brooding fruit. Cool and lean with intensity, salinity and lots of structure. Less of a crowd pleaser but very elegant

Dense and compacted. Gorgeous fruit with real structure. One for the ages.

A very pretty nose of faded rose petals and soft red fruit. Underbrush. Pure middle with a lovely long, nuanced finish
