Had this with mother’s day dinner. Went great with Filet that night. Not a wine that will be as long lived as the 2006 Rauzan Segla, nor a wine that is as intellectually stimulating, but it is imminently drinkable and incredibly enjoyable. Everything is in harmony and balance. The wine is surprisingly soft, but not flabby or boring. Cherry and cigarbox dominate the flavor profile. Pleasing,sappy finish. Very nice QPR wine. Can be cellared for a few years, but I think it’s drinking very well right now and it’s in a good enough place that I am unconvinced that extended cellaring will benefit the wine.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
