Vinturied into a decanter and let sit for 90 minutes; poured using the vinturi. Light-medium garnet-ruby in colour; nose of very dark red fruits and some cassis with some black cherries and anise; can kinda smell the heat. The palate's getting loads of black fruits, black licorice, and some dark herbs; tannic up front and hot at the end; medium bodied with a short-medium finish. Lay this one down for a few more years before trying again.

Pnp. Black cherries and some vanilla on the nose; dark red fruits with some tobacco on the palate though not that prevalent. Medium bodied with a medium finish; has a very good balance to it. Me thinks this has a few more years of life to it.

Garnet coloured in the glass; getting ripe crushed cherries and blueberries on the nose. The palate is very friendly with some more red and blue fruits along with some hints of coffee. Smooth and the tannins are just about non-existent. Drinking very well as it is.

2010 Michel Gassier Cercius

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend more

30 minute decant and poured through a vinturri. Dark ruby-esque in colour. Getting some blackberries, cherries, and some licorice on the nose. The palate is getting some more black berries, black cherry licorice, with some black peppers and dark tobacco; concentrated and focused. Tannins are coarse but they're not all over the place. Medium bodied with a medium finish. This is supposedly a dead ringer for a CdP and I can kinda see that from my limited experience. Plenty of wine for the money on this one.

    2/26/2013 1:33:00 PM - Thanks Barry Notes. I'm pretty impressed with this wine. I do my shopping mostly online(the usual suspects: WTSO, Last Bottle, WineShopper, and a few others) and do go to Applejack every now and then as I don't live that far away from them. May have to try the Argonaut tasting event as I've always been interested in going to tasting events to find some diamonds in the rough out there.
