    June 12, 2016 - The wine has medium acidity. It smells like blackberry, cranberry, almond, black currant (cassis), molasses, raspberry and cherry. The wine finishes medium. It tastes like black currant (cassis), Herbes de Provence, prune, walnut, gooseberry, molasses, raisin, butterscotch, black olive, strawberry jam and hay/straw. The wine looks crimson colored. The legs are fast. There is no sediment in the bottle. The wine has round texture.

    August 15, 2015 - Vinous, oily, tart on finish. Needed food. Served at a wine tasting to little acclaim...

    January 4, 2015 - No longer drinking well. There's a hint of pear and honeysuckle on the nose. The palate is flat and finishes boozy.

    August 29, 2014 - A lovely approachable example of a Rhone white. Viognier very much to the fore in the blend. Enough body to be a good aperitif wine or paired with food. A bit too fruity for some fish dishes though.
