Deep red, but with a slight brick-red coloured edge. Plums and prunes on the nose, with a touch of leather. Stables! Yes that's it, horse, saddle and hay! There is some oak as well, but not at all disrupting. The palate shows typical black fruit, with some caramel often found in northern Rhônes. Nicely integrated oak, fruitdriven and soft, well-balanced acidity. Medium long aftertaste. Surprisingly good in regards to the tasting notes on cellartracker, brilliant with Osso Bucco.
Color: deep and dark red. Nose: powerful and oaky. Mouth: full-bodied with a lot of oak (dominating the taste) with fruit subdued, a bit heavy, quite soft tannins. Short-medium finish. Overall, this wine can be described as good, but lacking in complexity. It seems to have peaked now (in 2009) so no need to age it much longer.
