Excited to taste and drink some value wines as all I had was baller stuff until the recent shipment. If I have 10 cases of wine in my apartment I’ll drink all the value stuff first. When I have no value stuff I drink the baller stuff with no rhyme or reason. Maybe TMI here but hey, 4 people are reading this.

This is a smoking great value. Nose is cassis, herbs de Provence, licorice, and stones. Very deep nose. Smells like a gigondas or CDP. Palate is silky and ripe and holds its 15% admirably. Big tannins but ripe and sweet and just tremendous structure and admirable purity .

This has really come together after 6 hours. Elegant, crunch, balanced, pure and long. 9.2 to 9.3.

Heat & tannin blow off/soften after three hours to reveal a lovely core of structured sweet fruit with garrigue. Nice work.
