Tradition Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2013

This is a very nice Grenache blend from Southern Rhone.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, bell pepper, oak, barnyard, vegetables, spices, bitter herbs, wet leaves, earth and black pepper.

Tangy finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

Has a very pretty color now, and the nose is really stinky, even after 4 hours in a decanter, with lots of barnyard and animal notes.

Wine Enthusiasts 93 points.

Feels more like a Northern Rhone red. The Syrah seems to be very dominant.

A very enjoyable food wine that I paired with braised beef short ribs in red wine sauce.

A blend of 55% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Mourvedre and 15% Cinsault.

15% alcohol by volume.

La Domaines Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grenache Blend 2015

Blend of 70% Grenache with rest mostly Mourvèdre & Cinsault, aged in French oak. Deep Ruby, pronounced red fruit aromas with herb, floral and earthy spice notes. On the palate blackberry & cherry flavors with smoky and earthy spice notes. Fine tannins, long finish ending with an earthy, floral and oak character. Very nice! — a year ago

I was totally wasted for that wine! You're the third person to make fun of me for that!

Excellent. Tertiary flavors of leather, earth, stewed red cherry. Tannins have a bit of a bite at the end, but so delicious!!!!
