Wines At Our Table; Week of March 15, 2015; 3/9/2015-3/16/2015: Consistent with prior review - Carmine color with alluring tobacco, garrigue, Herbs de Provence, baking spice and red fruit aromas. On the palate it's light bodied and fresh with a supple texture and black cherry, raspberry, and spice flavors underscored with an appealing minerality and chalky tannins. Lingering finish.
OK showing, but I think it was better a few years ago. It is quite smooth right now, pulled together, easy. There is a slight leather, stewed tomato note on the nose, which shows a tiny bit of age. Interesting, but only a bit on the nose. The attack is soft, integrated, velvet like a Pinot. Some complexity there, but mostly just soft grenache-driven medium fruit. Dry pleasant finish without much tannin. Was probably more interesting before; it might be more interesting if left really to evolve; but it is drinking easy now.
