Cherry liquer. Red and purple fruit, some barnyard, mulberry and garrigue on the finish. Ripe fruit but lithe with fresh acid, not at all overextracted; prominent tannins (but not too aggressive). Almost reminds me of a ripe, herbaceous alto piedmont Nebbiolo. Fairly one note on the nose for now, just needs more time.

In some ways, Chateau Simone reminds me of some of the more austere vintages of Musar. Always a head turner due to its class. Lovely.

Aromas of citrus and red apple skins. Flavors of red apples, citrus and licorice. Lots of acidity but not too sharp. Very good texture. #palette #rose

Opening this was a “woah, that is really fckn good” moment. Never let up. Dried fruit, savory herbs, leather. Good lift. Great value...drank at home with beef stew
