Opened and tried a glass. Extremely closed, with medium asteingency. Opened a little after a three hour decant. Still basically closed even after double decant and an overnight.

This is still an extremely tight wine. I will return to it in two years.

Nice bottle from the southern Rhone. This needed about 30 minutes of bottle air to settle down, but what was left was highlighted by agreeable tannins along with the raspberry ganache and even some mint coming from the grenache. This is fine Cotes du Rhone adn overall an enjoyable bottle of wine with excellent QPR - thanks Last Bottle!

Decanted several hours. Dark Crimson, silky soft tannins, dark fruit, smoke, spice, forest floor. Nice weight and balance. Overall very good.

The bottle I had was thin, very dry with an almost bitter taste - not what I'd expect from a Grenache. Legs were very nice but the total absence of fruit was a big turn off. How this was rated RP 91, as was displayed on the wrapper, is beyond me. Maybe I had a bad bottle?? Found at Costco for under $9.

A nose of dark fruits and spice, dark purple in color. A medium to full bodied red, with black cherry, cassis, licorice and spice on finish, still young.
