December 8, 2016 - Received as gift from someone at some point. Was a bit skeptical, and ultimately opened it as a pizza wine one night because we had nothing but "good" wines. Read a few reviews. What a shock! I've got to find a case. A rich, yet old world nose, with some mocha, blackberry, licorice, and graphite. Full, lush, and fruity on the palate, with more of the blackberry, licorice, and graphite, good acidity, and some finely integrated tannins. Wonderful with pizza. Would love to find a case of this, as it seems to be able to be had for ~$15. Fantastic value.

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.
