Rhône Grenache Blend

Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe

La Crau Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2015

I took one whiff and a taste of this and remembered why I love CdP. Red and black berries, earthy, dried herbs, raspberry and coal dust. 60% Grenache; 20% Mourvèdre; 15% Syrah and 5% other permitted varieties Has depth and flavour but does it at just medium bodied. I didn’t realise I had a bottle in mid June 2023. I normally try to spread them out a bit. — 9 days ago

Machete Petite Sirah Blend 2014

Still has plenty of runway. Not sure it has even peaked yet. Very nice surprise. All components have matured together and oak is integrated and in balance. — 8 days ago

James Berry Vineyard Red Rhône Blend 2010

2010 vintage. Thinned out somewhat, body-wise, yet still packing a punch. Lots of complexities still in the tasting grasp. 9.20.23. — 11 days ago

Domaine Charvin

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2020

2020 vintage. Decanted for air-no sed. Medium body. Just enough back door acidity/tannins to cover that delicious, macerated raspberry smoothie at the front door, meet and greet. 8.30.23. — a month ago
