Dark with a vibrant red rim. classic Rhone Syrah on the nose, blackcurrant and cracked pepper. Quite big on the palate, still tannic, and a little lacking in acidity. Fairly simple but not unpleasant. A decent, honest Crozes - nothing to get too excited about, but serviceable.
Concentrated strong smell of mass-produced Côtes du Rhône with some damp cellar notes. Palate somewhat muted. Time in the decanter doesn't help, though the tannins soften a bit. Probably affected by TCA. This is a relatively mild case but we poured it down the drain anyway. Disappointment. Source: Sainsbury's (London, UK).
