  • Nicely evolved wine. Complex aroma with dominated cherry. Very smooth, medium bodied. Ready to drink.

  • A nose of dark fruit and spice, some funk, dark purple in color. A medium to full bodied Rhone blend, with black cherry, plum, herbs, licorice and spice on finish, a good blend.

  • Tasty wine. Good black fruit and lots of complex herbs (sage, pepper) and mineral on the finish. Good with our bread with olive oil and herbs.

  • First bottle of this (of 2), and was recommended it about 2 yrs. ago as a solid weeknight wine, and while it's a little bigger than I'd typically consider for this description, the ($14) price paid certainly fits the bill. 40% grenache & 30% carignan (50+ yrs.), and 20% syrah & 10% mourvedre (10+ yrs.) Deep ruby color. Aromas of dried sage, clove, fennel, funk, oak, a bit of darker fruits, and a touch of floral is sitting underneath that I wish would peak out a bit more. Medium body, good acidity and length, and flavors of dark fruit, green and mild jalapeño peppers, dried herbs, licorice, notable minerality, and oak, and the 15% alc. is showing itself a bit. This a bigger style that punches above its price point for sure, and there's some noteworthy complexity here, but it's a little overdone on the oak and alcohol for my taste, though I am enjoying it the more I drink it (prob. that 15% coming in again ;). I guess I'd recommend it to some and not to others, depending on their palate. If you like bigger Rhones and Bordeaux, then this is a Roch-ing value (see what I did there?).

    Edit: Popped & poured this, but then casually drank it over 7+ hrs., and the last sips were much more integrated, so I would recommend decanting this one.
