Stellar Krazor nose but sadly JM Stephan could not over come the warmth of the vintage as he was not as good a winemaker as he is today. Palate was hot, and a bit all over the place but man that nose.

Just class in a glass. The 2nd best Côte Rotie next to his So Brune.

No formal notes. Drunk at dinner. The best 15 yet stateside. Just a genius wine.

One or those flowery reds that makes you say WOW! It is both full-bodied and elegant. Sumptuous and complex. Spicy and structured. Might as well be talking about women!

#IPOW. Must be a favorite in these quarters, even though I haven't seen any postings about it yet. Totally naked Syrah-expression, showing slatey minerality, wonderful floral notes, classic spice and bay leafs aromas and flavors, finishing super-fresh, clean, expressive and elegant. Only 12%...

Slightly reductive but incredibly interesting example of a Cote-Rotie made entirely of the small berries Serine. Savory

So much character and attractiveness, like the coolest person at a party that steals the show. Fantastic wine.

This was a nice bottle of wine, but tasted a lot more like cru Beaujolais than Cote-Rotie. Very earthy with some noticeable bret (not necessarily a bad thing) and a lot of fruit. It ended up going quite well with delicate lamb shanks.
