Unfortunately a decant was not possible as this was consumed at a colleague's house for Thanksgiving dinner. For me this was a clear illustration of how a lovely wine can be shortchanged when it is not given enough air to shine. P&P, color a beautiful garnet, medium body, clear from rim to core. Swirling the best I could in the globe goblet, a reticent nose of fresh cherries and a little earth. Elegant and smooth, with a velvety mouthfeel and longish finish of around 25 seconds. Spouse made a special point during dinner to say how much she enjoyed it.
Unbelievable for the price; reserved nose but a very long finish; fantastically soft tannins with a rich mid-palate that fills a chocolately though mildly earthy chewiness. Very drinkable right now despite its age, will only get better.
Nice deep purplish red - presumably grenache. Quite fresh oaky, raisiny nose, some nice cherry fruit. Good firm structure on the palate with nice ripe but not overnlown plum fruit. Again slight bitterness on a good lengthy finish, but overall very nice. 3
