Reddish tawny color. Deep brooding nose. Notes of black cherry, sois bois, Asian spice and moist soil. Needed 7 hours in a decanter to show its stuff. Silky and memorable.

Tawny, clear and bright. Nose of cranberry, black cherry, mushroom, some pepper and dark spice. Refined in the mouth. Good fruit, lots of structure. Masculine. A dry finish. Some sweetness in the nose appears with air. Curious where this will go in a few years.

Tawny and translucent. Captivating nose with notes of ripe bing cherries, Asian spice, menthol, blueberry, clay soil and dried flowers. In the mouth the wine went from light bodied to rich and expansive after a few hours of air. Tannins fully resolved leaving just silky fruit with a long finish

Highest complexity to a wine Ive had. Every sip seems like a new adventure. Iron and copper like minerality, a fresh dill component but unlike rioja, lots of tart cranberry and pomegranate flavors. The finish is cedary, herbal and long. A touch of wet mulch and barnyard funk adds that honest terroir expression with classic style. Very much in tact but no need to hold much longer.

2006. A compromised cork led to what I feared, a wine already fading. Once decanted it went from the last whispers of youth through secondary and onto tertiary aromas and flavors in only a few hours. A good wine but ultimately disappointing. Nothing like what we enjoyed at the domaine a few years ago. C'est la vie.

This is just all power... tannic but not full of alcohol... a powerful bottle of wine. Dark red and blue berries
