Community Tasting Note

    January 4, 2022 - Last tried 3 years ago.
    Rhone blend I believe Grenache, Carignan etc. , so expect purpley pinky rather than deep red after 10 years.
    No clue on the label of the assemblage - which I like!

    Woody spice on the nose with a meaty mushroomy note but I was cooking a bone-in-rib at the time!

    Any fruit left is too muted to pick out.
    Sturdy, medium bodied, and noticeable tannins on the palate, and as the fruit has disappeared the acidity comes to the fore. Bitter herbs - is that what they mean by garrigue?
    Makes much more sense with food as the acidity cuts through the richness of the beef and the saute potatoes
    I can see why others have suggested it's past it.
    As a drink in-and-of itself perhaps.
    Drink it with the right food and it still works well.

    Last of my 6 bottles. Since buying EP, my palate has shifted so won't be seeking out to buy again.
