My Rating 83 Points.
Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, blueberries, plums, wood, earth, vegetables, coffee, vanilla, herbs, spices, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.
Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, strawberries, currants, vanilla, licorice, herbs, spices, earth, wet leaves and peppercorn.
Nice finish with medium tannins and tart cherries.
This is a nice Côte du Rhône. A little unbalanced with mild complexity. Drinking very nicely now.
Better after an hour in a decanter, but drinkable right out of the bottle.
A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah.
I paired it with a chicken flatbread.
13.5% alcohol by volume.
