Funky and delicious. Blend of Carignan, Cinsault, Clairette, Grenache, Grenache Blanc. Grenache Gris, Macabeu, Malvasia, Muscat a Petits Grains, Ugni Blanc, Aramon, Terret, and Jacquet from apparently 200 year old pre-phylloxera vines. On the nose, black pepper, black fruit, iron and stone. In the mouth, bright and earthy, black currants and cherries, some floral elements. Tannic and acidic mid-palate. Long finish. Very fresh and natural. — 19 days ago
Earth, dried flowers and gun oil on the nose. Roses, leather and dried cherries in the mouth. Good acid, moderate tannins, medium-long finish. Well priced and correct for the region. Needs 3-5 more years for secondary characteristics to show. — 3 months ago
In the nose, forest floor, rose petals and dark cherries. In the mouth, bright red fruit, dried flowers, baking spices and juicy acidity. Medium long finish with slightly grippy tannins. Good QPR@ 27 dollars, however at the original price of 40 bucks, a tad overpriced.... — 5 days ago
I mean, cmon. Does wine get more fun than this? On the nose, extremely floral and full of blueberries, currants and roses. In the mouth, tart red currants, blueberries and rose petals. Medium long finish. Reminds me of a cru Beaujolais with some characteristics of a Rhône wine. Cool and good QPR at 22 bucks. — 3 months ago
