I didn’t pick up any of the Viognier in here, but fantastic anyways, and peaking for sure. Light strawberry, mushroom-earth, leather, perfectly resolved and feathery on the palate, but still with enough latent power and finesse to leave a long impression. Nice!

Mine, so easiest to pick out blind, the last of my 6-case. Like the Chave, but more red floral, the palate loamy with mushrooms and leather, hints of cinnamon, bloody iron. Kept improving in the glass, achieving a lightness and length its case siblings never reached. I still say drink up, with a decant. Outstanding.

Good older dark scarlet color. Vibrant. Almost opaque. Pruney at first, but with adequate air the nose was exotic. Notes of black cherry, menthol, brush, slate and raspberry. Fruit is still young, Structure is noticeable but softened. This can still improve I think but is excellent today.

Lean and austere; showing herbaceous Syrah typicity, eventually revealing more savory and meaty character.

Aromas of tropical mocha but still holding on to vibrant fruit.
