    2011. My 4th bottle. Smoky, violet, and baked bacon to the nose. What a huge wine, overflowing with intense big black prune and plum flavors to the point of seeming a bit sweet. Yet it’s all framed by strong yet softly dusty tannins. My very first emotion!

    (2000 Vintage) Full ruby-red. Liqueur-like aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and licorice. Lush, fat and full in the mouth, with superb concentration and richness. A seamless wine with great Chateauneuf du Pape character. Complicating notes of tar and chocolate. Finishes with dusty, broad tannins and great persistence. This can be enjoyed now with the right dishes but should age gracefully.
