Orange marmalade, subtle herbs of Provence, honeyed, slightly hot finish. Interesting for what it is.

More booze than I expected and wanted (labeled as 14%) but delicious nonetheless. Minerals, barely ripe bramble, M+ acid.

Not sure I’ve had a wine like this before. Heavy peppercorn crusted smoked meat and iron but where I thought it would continue a NRhonê power profile, it turned thin/lean. The palate showed more pepper and salted cured meats. Finish of black pepper, violets and old potpourri. A lean CdP?

Bramble, blood orange, resinous herbs, garrigue and wild flowers. There's an olive/herbal undertone to the wine. Pleasantly astringent. A fresh and bright substitute to the heady grenache-based S. Rhône wines that can be somewhat taxing to drink on warm summer days

Light bodied, drinking surprisingly well for a 1 year old wine, refreshing and electric

Not quite the depth or complexity of the top bottling, but Olympic viewing worthy.

Orange pith, soursop, raspberries and that hit of oxidative love.
