Hard cherry candy that blew off after about an hour decant. It continued to improve from there as layers of red fruit piled on and carried through the finish. It fell slightly hollow in the mid palate where perhaps some additional age might help develop some complexity.

Formerly esprit de Beaucastel, this is always a beauty. Complex and brimming with ripe red fruit, white pepper, resin, and a little meatiness. Surprisingly soft on palate, but there's a lot to enjoy there. I can't wait to revisit this...

Not my favorite vintage of this. A bit simple and straightforward, though enjoyable. May need more time.

Young. Should have decanted. Still pretty nice. Lighter than previous vintages.

This wine got game; like, deer and pheasant in the heart of a forest.
