Nose like a french cab, tastes like a good american cab with surprisingly long, dry tannins for a ten year old wine. Plummy, not peppery, not at all like a rhone wine, even though it is a Grenache blend. Would have been good with steak, but had it with pizza (plastic cork made me underestimate), oh well.
