Richer style than its 2010 CDP counterparts. Seems like more syrah-based style. Rich fruit on the nose with black cherries, acaí and plum continuing through to the palate. With the medium tannins, I'd give it another 8 years to come around and maybe soften a touch.

Cured, smoked meat, roasted fruit -- strawberries, red currants, plums. Just a baby.

Rather youthful. Slight metallic quality still dominating fruit along with tannins. Showed well with lamb shank!

Quite pleasant. Nice stone fruit, subtle viscosity, rich with nice acidity and a mature finish.

Not enough fruit here. Almost has an oatmeal nose to it.

Very nice old style cdp. This wine like all in cdp must be 60 invent Grenache this one is slightly above that but shows wonderful roasted meats and red fruit. This wine is looking for stew or shepherd's pie.
