October 2020: Aromatic and drinking beautifully now.
January 2018: This spicy Alpine has entered its prime drinking window and is fully resolved. Drink.
August 2015: Fantastic aromatics but still needs to come together on the palate. Might improve with air now but better to keep cellaring.
January 2015: While this wine is becoming approachable, we recommend waiting another year or two. Drink/Hold
February 2013: This wine shows the powerful side of Alpine. The primary and intense ripe black fruit is currently hiding the complexity that will emerge with bottle age. This can be opened now for the fruit or aged for the full experience.
