better than last showing and better with food. i was not impressed aromatically but the palate was cool dark fruit and plum with some mineral acidity on back that refreshed very good should last 3-5 years
Loved it, but higher rating would have been given with the exception of the finish. You hear about a wine's entry, middle and finish, and this wine was a roller coaster in that regard. The entry Southern Rhone, the middle was almost like California Cabernet and the finish was acidic and screaming for food. Would love to have more.
