    I was looking for an affordable wine with nice Rhone character. This wine fit the bill with a bit of wet barnyard soil, deep broody color, medium plus weight, bramble, raisins, black fruits and smoked bacon on the palate. Slightly hot yet overall pleasing. I would buy a few more and let them rest a 1-3 more years.
    Cost was €6.80 at Carrefour Market and I felt like I choose a winner. Looking forward to tasting the left overs tomorrow.
