Another dinner with huge BBQ'ed rib-eye steaks sent me to the basement in search for some "kapow". As always, my wife tested the wine blind. Managed to fool her into thinking this was a Northern Rhone..... Anyway, it isn't and the ripe fruitiness, also made her change her mind later in the guessing game. Dark (!) in the glass. On the nose lush, ripe dark berries with some "mineral tightness" (in lack of a better word). I can understand why my wife initially was guessing for Northern Rhone. The palate did reflect the nose to a large extent, and the fruit caracteristics combined with rather solid tannins made this a decent wine for BBQ'ed steaks. Quite long finish.
