Popped and poured. The 2015 LVdA pours a deep violet color and is now throwing a significant amount of fine sediment. On the nose, blue and black fruits, black pepper, deli case, black olives, lavender and stone-like minerals. On the palate, the notes from the nose are confirmed and accompanied by some chocolate too. Medium tannin and medium (+) acid. On the pour, the body is a touch thin for my liking but it gains some weight with air. By hour two, it’s hitting its stride. The finish is long and delicious. This is in a good place right now and will likely do so at least through 2025. — a day ago
Nose has tangerine peel, raspberries, roses and under-ripe nectarine.
Palate has candied orange, strawberry, orange pith/zest, mild acidity and lingering mineral notes to the medium finish.
Blind, this is a Provence rose to me; nice effort in the cellar here. A steal of a deal when we got this for ~$14.

Viognier with mustard seeds (7 in bottle to be exact).
Couldn’t detect mustard in the wine, dont believe the negative reviews about the wine being unpleasant. Grey Poupon is made with Viognier, and this Viognier from Napa was made with mustard seeds (unsure if local or from Dijon). Fun.
Crisp Viognier, paired nicely with Chicken in Mustard Sauce. Geeky & tasty. Glad I jumped and scored the limited edition wine, which came with a bottle of Grey Poupon mustard and recipes for pairing. — 24 days ago
Yeah I know Peeps a wine from Walmart. I did read a review that this one was pretty decent; allowed a bottle to follow..along with the kitty food! 🐈 I am humbled to report..this is good! Nice medium bodied, melon, tangerine, strawberry, lime and minerals. Bottle does not indicate but does remind me of a Provence Rosé. @Sharon B you would like this! Nice with a few years on this Not Tempier..under $10!

Ripe strawberries on the nose and palate, a rich body with light tingly acid and lingering minerals. Just delicious. — a day ago
