Insane florals. Purple rose is accurate. Lilac, violet, cassis, strong black licorice on the bouquet that’s redolent with dank purple florals. Very sensual. Palate is dark purple/and black fruits, but they dance across the palate weightlessly. Ground stone, gunpowder, and dark mineral undertones with a hint of charred fruitwood smoke giving this depth. A bit inky but really silky and gentle at the same time. Intoxicating; you just want to keep your nose in the glass. In an awesome place and can only get better.

This is phenomenal. So so concentrated. Deep fragrances suggesting tart black plums, wild brambles and blackberries mingle with musky, ferrous scents of blood and perfume. The palate is masterful- sexy and dripping with dark red fruit and savory, salty, primeval flavors. Love this cuvee. ‘12 maybe even better than the ‘15.

Very clean... Incredible quality and drinking nicely. Not like your rustic cured meats, fennel seed, olive, red fruited Cote Roties but very good...

I thought this was quite delicious. There was a big lick of oak in this but also some delicious cherry action and some ripper white pepper things going on.

Great fruit and spice. Pours brick red. Rich and not too dry
