One of my favs of the tasting (there was a '98 Clape Cornas, etc), and to find out this is so modestly priced is insane. Such polish and poise, I put this at $40 easily. Honest, soulful. very highly recommended, 14,0% abv, thru 2018
A blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Mouvedre, and 15% Syrah. An excellent mix of brambly garrigue and deep fruit flavors and scents from start to finish with excellent balance. Gets even better with time in the glass. This is a fantastic value at $22.
Aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, garrigue, spice and minerals. Medium-plus bodied and medium acidity, with mainly black fruits, some red fruit and earth on the palate. Chewy tannins; as one would expect, quite young and in need of at least a few years cellaring. Good depth and length. Rounder and softer after 3 days, but still with a fair amount of grip.
