A really super bottling from this lovely property. Deep ruby, no bricking. Nose came on after 20 mins or so and displayed lots of brite red fruits, plums, cassis, and a touch of vanilla/mint. Solid entry and middle, and a 4+ lapper finish. 200 cases. 90/88.(graded against their regular bottling at 1/2 the price) 50 by the box. 13.5% alc. WW

Had another of this super bottlinh for lunch today. Has improved markedly over the last 2 years. The nose has become more floral with more black fruits than before. The entry is heavy with a weighty center and the same lovely 4+ lapper finish. Kick the rating up a notch to 91. WW

WW, I spoke with the couple when they were at the Boston Expo. Super nice people and great wines!

Had this for lunch yesterday and think it may possibly be my last bottle. No change, just the same-ole. What a solid producer. WW
