Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, currants, earth, vanilla, vegetables, light bell pepper, coffee, tobacco leaf, wood, spices and peppercorn.

This is a nice Côte du Rhône red blend. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food. Showing mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Drinking nicely now and in the next few years.
A good food wine too. I paired it with a cheese plate, fruits and crackers.
I had it 6 months ago and it is already drinking nicer.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
