Started out sweet which is surprising because I can’t really the last time I’ve had a CdP red wine start sweet from the front and end earthy on the back notes. Definitely could get the earthy and herbaceous Grenache and some of the spicy Syrah. Most of these types of wine come across as warm with juicy notes and Dusty tannins and this one didn’t disappoint, it was just a more subdued or maybe colder tasting version of that. The tenants were there to add structure but did little else, and overall the entire bottle felt more restrained than some of the sunbaked and hot fruit flavors you can get from the southern Rhône. Delicious example of CdP, enjoyed it with a stew in this cold weather.
