Dark ruby in color with a wide reddish /cloudy rim.
Fruity on the palate with blueberries, cherries, plums, currants, light wood, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, tobacco, dark coffee and pencil lead. Really complex nose.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity and nice legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, blueberries, strawberries, wood, licorice, earth, light vegetables, pencil lead, spices, light vanilla, espresso, dark chocolates and peppercorn.
Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and red chili pepper.
This 9 year old Red Blend from France is peaking now. Showing a great nose and a spicy palate.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up. Better after an hour of airtime, and becomes earthier as it opens up.
Easy drinking with nice complexity. Spicy and fruit forward. Good by itself or with food.
Not from a great vintage, but very drinkable now, even by itself. An interesting and engaging wine.
A blend of Cabernet Franc, Carignan and Syrah.
14% alcohol by volume.

Candied plums, black raspberry, spicy black pepper, and hints of rhubarb on the nose. Lush and smooth, with accents of tobacco and sage over plum and boysenberry fruit. Finishes in balance with length. Alcohol is kept in check. Great a QPR. — 8 days ago
Purple fruit, big burst of acidity, firm tannins — 10 days ago
Smells like poo. Only after some violent shaking and a double decant did it express some red fruits, backed by an olive reduction on the nose. The palate's earthy and spicy, with a touch of animale. Finishes tart and leathery. An elegant expression of Syrah, but perhaps too light and funky for my liking. — a month ago
