Côte-du-Rhone style. The fruit (Black) is respected. We find the beautiful notes of peppery violet of Syrah, and the greedy character strawberry/caramel of the grenache.. also the roasted side, liquorice. Nice and cool.

Big tannic and dry, a hearty grunty Grenache. Borderline too dry .. think I left it too long on decant and lost the clarity of early fruit and spice .. will just pop and pour next one. — 20 days ago
It was a Sine Qua Non night (which are always my favorites!). This was surprisingly tight given its age. Came back to it a couple of days later and it was SO MUCH better. If you have this in your cellar and are planning to pull it soon, I’d suggest a 4-hour decant to let it open up. It’ll be fantastic! — 3 days ago
Wow. Absolutely spectacular. Normally I view grenache as something to drink a bit younger in order to preserve the brightness of the fruit, but John Alban proves me wrong yet again. This wine envelops you like a velvet glove of fruit, spice, and sweet tannins even at the ripe old age of 15. My only regret is that this is the last bottle of this vintage we have in the cellar, because I think this will last at least another 4-6 years. Just amazing. — 22 days ago
