Comparing with my previous notes, the wine is settled down, the acidity is lovely integrated, sweet ripe fruit is in good balance. After 3 hours the wine has opened with a whiff of warm smoky aroma and fresh cherry fruit.

(Famille Perrin / Perrin & Fils Vinsobres Les Cornuds) Very dark cherry red color; savory, pepper, charcoal nose; tasty, very tart black fruit, charcoal, pepper palate; very poised and appealing Cotes du Rhone; ready now and should go 5-7 years; medium-plus finish (50/50 Grenache and Syrah; good value at about $19)
