Well balanced! Bright red fruits with a hint of baking spice. Nice acid up front and rounds off on the finish.

Huge wine in all senses, if not tasted with some of Chateauneuf du Pape's best might have showed better.

Huge S 70% M 20% G 10%! Really rich, but at 15% ABV a little warmth. All said, a nice experience.

In magnum, big hit with the masses, no detailed notes as the night was getting late.

16.6 alcohol and didn't detect a thing. Who says Saxum can't age?
