Community Tasting Notes 2

    February 4, 2017 - A wide variety at LWS (Gruaud, D'Issan, Rinaldi +++) (Colonial Beverage, Chesterland Ohio): This house is always a great source of value. I may have underscored it, but I didn't get a lot of time to spend with this. Purple in color. Seems like Grenache but a hint of Syrah. Ruby/purple in color. The nose is nice with dark cherries, some charcoal, bits of spice, slight floral note. Nice texture. Drinking well with some depth to it. Some tannins. Good balance. Dark cherries with some black raspberries on the palate. Nice finish. I did not catch the pricing but this is usually a great value and the 2012 is in a great place. Still, i think it goes another 5 without too much trouble.

    July 9, 2016 - This was one hell of a surprise. For those that like old-world, traditional Châteauneuf-du-Pape for a fraction of the price, this is it! While certainly not a CDP, this wine showed a garnet-red color, smooth with a medium body that holds on the palate for just the right amount of time. Lots of red fruit (especially cherry), spice, moss, wet grass and cedar. Aroma of leather. Nice tannin which disappeared over time and then just became a nice, smooth wine. All in all, a great Cote du Rhone.
