Drinking perfectly. Spicy dark fruit, some spice box, and slight tannins hiding behind some sweet fruit. Lots of delicate and intricate flavors behind a medium finish. Clearly this has evolved from the last tastings several years ago. However this will probably plateau for 3-5 years. This is really quite good.

Magnifique! Darkest ruby in the glass, almost purple, with garnet edges and powerful legs. An hour after decanting, the nose is superb and captivating, offering harvest fields and evergreen forests, exotic Middle Eastern spices, as well as licorice and cocoa. I kept swirling and swirling, lost in heady fragrances, almost afraid that the palate might disappoint compared to the nose. No worries! The palate begins also with highlands and woodlands, merging into baked chocolate cakes and savory succulent figs. The finish lingers lovingly on the roof of my mouth while coating my tongue. Jupiter is king of planets; this wine is king of CdPs.

A new CnP for me. It tastes and smells like a sweet Reciota Amarone. I know that Grenache grape can be very potent. But can it be so crafty by itself? My wife said "whiskey in the jar". I have to try it with desert or strong cheese. I can´t make my mind on this one.

Very good table wine. Can not beat the price. Spicy, medium-full bodied, lively acidity, dark cherry. Great with food.

Beautiful bouquet with flowers, ripe red berry fruits and garrigue. On the palate almost overripe fruits, herbs and spices, chocolate, some acidity and soft tannin. It is a surprise that the 16.5% abv is not disturbing and this is in fact a really enjoyable wine.

Blackberries, red cherries, clay earth, and herbs on the nose and palate. Good acidity, moderate tannins, decent finish. Overall, I liked this wine. It's a bit simple and light, but has enough stuff going on to keep things interesting. Seemed just right on the dinner table. Amazing value too.

Great nose with cherry, plum, smoke and blackberry. It is a medium bodied wine with a very long finish and a touch of acidity. This is a great wine at any price, but at about $15 it can't be overlooked.

The best I've tasted from the "Halos de Jupiter" series, this CdR Grenache blend is richer and deeper than the alternatives, with lovely fruit notes of buttery plum, violets, blueberry, and raspberry supported by earth, leather, pepper spice, and those characteristic herbal-savoury elements of southern France. What keeps it from being a 90 is the excessive alcohol burn (15.5%) on the finish, alongside a touch of bitterness that detracts from the otherwise excellent length, but as an expression of the Grenache varietal from a specific part of a specific country, these Halos really hit the mark.

Here's an fabulous value from wonderful Costières de Nîmes, an earthy, savoury Grenache-based blend with predominant notes of smoked and roasted meat (including a whiff of bacon) and local herbs, and so very much a product of the region. The fruit is somewhat suppressed, but there's fig and other darker fruit in there, as well as raspberry, with added complexity, and warmth, coming from cinnamon and pepper. Unfortunately, it ends fairly quickly on the palette, the flavours just evaporating, replaced with a mild astringency, but overall this is still a very absorbing wine that points to what Grenache can achieve in this part of the world.

Decanted for 3 hours....lots of barnyard funk on the nose; remained consistent throughout the evening. The wine lacked the depth and concentration that I was looking for. Medium bodied, simple wine. Drink now.

Full throttle Cotes du Rhone. This should've been a 'buy by the case' wine but i only bought one. Great QPR. Highly recommended. Will last another 2 years easily if stored properly.

Very nice with a NY strip. Not quite monotonic on the palate. The first presentation to the olfactory organ triggered visions of blackberries and raisined grapes cascading from the glass to the floor--Ah! A New World style! But further probing with the proboscis revealed an undertone of spice and floral elements, perhaps violets or, weirdly, the aroma of an orchid wafting through the oppressive humidity of your cabana in the evening; an aroma that promises and denies all in a single susperation.

Clear, pale gold in the glass.

The nose is fresh with rather neutral fruit. Apple and pear are really the only dominant characteristics. In the past this wine (after opening up) has been much richer with a honey and lees overtone and a subtle floral complexity. It just truly wasn't this wine's day to be open.

The palate was much rounder than the nose showing well developed texture and a nuanced spice. Bracing acidity challenges the delicate creaminess balancing the whole act. The finish is quick to dissipate.

A very mute bottle indeed - not corked but certainly not showing its true self. On it's best day: 90-91. Today: 85-86
