This is great wine! Rich, delicious, intense blackberry fruit, excellent structure, black olive and earth flavors, very round with amazing depth and breathe, Northern Rhone style without the tightness of fruit
decanted for 45 mins and drank with potatoes and pork loin. Didn't need as much food and I guess that I was expecting it to be a bigger wine. Upfront jammy and fruit on the nose. Wife and I both agreed that the nose was the best part of this wine. The finish was a little too tart for my taste and lacked the fruit that you smell up front. Seemed disconnected. I am not sure if this wine is on its way out, but I think that it is safe to say that I don't believe it has better years ahead of it.
Very dark hue. Black cherries on the nose. This was a pop and pour at a restaurant, finished at home the same night. Tightly wound initially, with some surprising tartness. Opened up, getting better the longer it was open. Red fruit profile, bright finish. Interesting bottle, my opinion on it waxed and waned as the night went on.
