Shimmering ruby. Smoky, spice-tinged black raspberry and cherry aromas carry a subtle floral topnote. Lively dark fruit and floral pastille flavors are deepened by a licorice nuance and a hint of bitter chocolate. Silky in texture and appealingly sweet, finishing with sharp focus and spicy persistence. 20% new French oak. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, August 2020)

Excellent light and easy drinking 13.5%. After many years finally a good one of this cuvée from the Burgundian Jadot Family outfit in Oregon.

The outfit from Louis Jadot in Oregon. The first vintage was brilliant. This not so much. I reviewed this before. Age made no difference lacks stuffing and and even at 28$ not recommended. Dark fruit hint blackberry. touch bitter. I have not gone back to any newer vintages a real disappointment.

Has a French touch. A ripe style despite 13.5%. 2016 was a hot year. Mostly dark fruit, black tea, just a hint of cherry 🍒 and raspberry. Faint whiff of cardamom and mint. Fantastic tannin management. More big than elegant. Long and complex. For the money a really good wine. Days later on my Argon line even better.

2015 Vintage- ya know, I wanna like this, but I just don’t know about it. Took a day to open up. And now it’s gone super quick. Maybe just lay it down and leave it alone for like 2 years.

$30 Medium nose. Notes of earthiness, baking spice, rasberry and cherry on the nose. Medium body. Off dry. High tannins. A little chewy. Medium alcohol. Medium acidity. Notes of dried leaves, mushrooms, potpourri, brown sugar, red licorice and plum. This is a yummy, smooth wine, worth drinking again. The tannins mellowed out after decanting.

Tasted blind and kept thinking it was Barbaresco, save for the very integrated soft tannins. Huge compliment. Very tertiary, red fruit is in the background with lots of organic earth, lifted nose, so much complexity. Beautiful!!
