My last bottle of this and again, it was outstanding. What makes this wine so good is its unique pencil shavings / graphite character that is complemented with leather, earth, and finesse black currant / cassis flavors and a nose that’s terrific. The price was good too, back then so that only enhances the pleasure. Although it can last in the cellar, it’s drinking beautifully right now.

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.
