Always one of the most raw and animal-like CDP’s out there. Complete opposite to Beuacastel et al. Would be divine with wild game. Baked red fruit dominate.

Fully developed - animal and leather and spice. Loaded with Brett. True to form when compared to 2011.

I guess if you screwed up CDP in 2012 you should probably consider a career change 😃. Delicious, and drinking well too. Cellar some of this for another 7-10 if you can.
