Fantastic gift from a local wine merchant and friend. Garnet tinted ruby, and lovely nose of dark, dried cherry, cured meat, charcoal, and stones. Tinge of herbs/ garrigue on the medium+ palate, cruising out to a very pleasant finish. Full of character.
3rd of 12. Quite pale in colour but still cherry red. Bright berry fruit with lots of black pepper and herbs, tannins on finish. A cheerful wine with medium body and still the potential for more development. 4/5
PNP at book club. This one never really came round for me. The wine was quite dark and not especially aged but there was a funk to the wine that gave it a strong flavor and perhaps just slightly sour. Did not get the sweet grenache flavors I have had with the 98 and 2000.
Slow O'd for a hour. Pretty-sweet red fruit, flowers, tar, olive tapenade, and dried herbs on a clean nose. The palate starts out light, clean, peppery, and juicy, then towards the mid and finish, this wines gets Giggy wit it and gets slutty! Earthy, funky, tobacco, rust/iron, ash, peppered mushroom, and darker fruit. Matched nicely with Pork tenderloin drizzled with maple syrup and mustard. A fun wine!
