Satisfying and well made Rhone with enough dense fruit for new world drinkers and enough old world aromas to please CDR regulars.
Full body with just enough juicy acid and round mouth watering tannins. Truly showcases the Syrah/Mouv. Blend.
nose and palate of tangy black cherry, ripe blue and blackberry, zesty garrigue and salty cured meats. French oak aging is noticable and adds rich lactic notes of chocolate, latte and pastry. slight metallic tartness sours the finish but isn't too distracting.
the wine is opulent but not overdone and certainly a steal at $10.
a bit crude in structure but perfect for weeknight drinking or buying by the case.

July 18, 2015 - Nice old world-new world hybrid. Starts off with Mourvedre animale funk, even a bit cheesey in a good way on the nose. But is nicely textured, filled with ripe blueberry and blackberry flavor. A bit of chalky minerality and tobacco as well. Gently tannic with a high delicious factor. Nose opens to more fruit and herbs over time. Drink near term for the fruit, I'd say.
