Member Notes

I don't know if anyone is still following this - haven't seen any notes lately - but it is just wonderful now. Smooth, long and still big, but not intrusive, and just wonderful. I never expected this to be coming on so strong at this point. This was a HUGE bargain! Glad I still have a few bottles.
Still a very big boy!

Still huge, but it has mellowed a bit, especially after about an hour's decanting. At that point, a lot of sweet fruit emerges and there are absolutely no rough edges. I believe this will have a pretty long life, and I'm going to try to ration it to see how it develops. I hope I live as long as it does!
Big boy!

Notes from 10/24/11: Wow! This is a big boy! Rich and full with well resolved tannins and good acidity. Drinking beautifully now. I'd give it 92-93 points. This is one of the few times I've actually bought a Southern Rhone other than a CDP and laid it down a year before opening even one - the reward seems worth it.
