After a poor performance by the 2003 this wine restores my faith in Charvin. It's a really moreish wine. Typical rich cherry fruit and garrique flavours as well as aromas. Rich with a touch of glycerin but in no way 'thick' or oily, in fact it's quite refreshing. Grenache quite obvious but not alcoholic and 'heady' as it can sometimes be. On the second day it's lovely too, almost, restrained. No rush to drink. Hides the 14.5%alc very well. Nicely balanced. A lovely southern Rhone wine.
Wine night with Joe and Kyla (Joe's Bar and Grill): Decanted 7hrs ahead, this wine has a medium garnet color and an open nose. Ripe red and black fruit with hints of kelp, underbrush, and spice. A really smooth texture and glorious finish that just lingers like a TSA line. Now-2025!
