Not sure if it was this bottle or if all are on same path but this bottle definitely on the backside of peak. Nose had definite prune notes. Palate was still nice without a lot of age and tannins were fully integrated.
Decanted for 2 1/2 hrs before dinner. Nice nose, big and well balanced on the pallet and a long finish. Very smooth and the fruit (cherry, berries and plum) is still fresh. Nice spice at the end of the pallet. Seems to be in a good window right now but Should drink well for a few mor years.
I had to check the to bottle to make sure this wasn't a galah based wine given the bright red snappy fruit overall freshness. He only part of the wine that screams southern Rhone is he mineral eases cue on the mid and read palate. I have to assume this has a large percentage of grenache and very little syrah. All told this is a really fun wine that has plenty of acidity to pair with light entrees...perhaps even fish. Cheers!
