    October 15, 2017 - Heavy bricking, transparent to the core, though notably darker than pinot. The nose on this wine was clearly advanced and overripe; prune, raisin, wet hay, dried orange peel, baked strawberry, fresh meat, anise, and fennel seed. The palate still has that grenache-led sweet entry, with virtually no tannin, and moderate acid keeping things fresh. I particularly enjoyed the dried orange peel note on the lingering finish that kept me coming back, redeeming an otherwise challenging wine. I actually came to quite enjoy it by the end.

    (Chateau de Mont Redon Châteauneuf du Pape) Fairly weak colour to this wine, with a prominent mahogany-tawny edge. Quite an animalistic nose, with aromas of singed hair and toasted marshmallows, all oak derived characteristics. Ripe and creamy texture to the palate, with smoky, Grenache dominated flavours. Lots of tannins evident on the midpalate through to the finish, where they really pack a punch. A big, alcoholic wine. This wine has a somewhat worrying colour considering the tannic palate.
