I don’t drink CnP often but when I do...this is a good option.

Monthly 4th Friday is post Thanksgiving this year, so lots of Thanksgiving style wines!

Nose was about an 8, but the palate is fantastic! Metallic, red clay, raisin and dirt on the nose. A surprising palate with the amount of fruit left! Wow. Blackberries covered in black pepper, peppercorn strip and licorice. Drink up! Very cool pull from

Young garnet color. Bright and translucent. Fruit forward nose. Notes of dark cherries, plums, some wood. Very jammy. Great balance and texture in the mouth.

Deep dark garnet and barely translucent. Bright nose with notes of plum, black cherry, herbs, and dried brush. Impactful in the mouth. Rich and chewy. In the zone.

Tawny red, almost opaque. Vibrant nose with rich fruit, earthy soil, herbs de Provence, and dry brush. Great balance of fruit, structure, acidity. Medium plus finish. Great showing.

Young with lingering tannins but showing nice wild blackberries, herbs and anise. Needs a few years to soften and come together.

2009. Love this producer. This particular bottle was in an awkward stage. Needs a few years to emerge.
