I decanted, had some first night, put rest back in the bottle and gassed it. First day was ok and the 85 score. A little off-putting by itself, it worked with a pasta dish. On the second day, this has opened up and blended into a delicious, great-QPR wine. 90 on the second. Nothing ethereal here, but a wonderfully drinking wine. Certainly decant for a couple of hours before drinking at this stage. Other's notes suggest drink up by 2015. I think this have a longer life. Plenty of fruit, and I think enough tannins to age for a few more years at least.
Pop and pour. Lots of cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit. Fruit driven and simple with a slight herbal note. A bit rustic in the texture and probably could have used some decanting. On the second day this rounded out a bit, but this remained a simple, fruity, slightly anonymous Grenache. Easy to drink, easy on the budget, but not much depth.
Good QPR. Nice bouquet, no detectable oak, not complex, but very nice body and balance. Great with steak. Better the second day. Incredibly full bodied and ripe without being over ripe. Complex. 93pts.
