Lots of animal and dried spices on the nose with iron, and that plummy Grenache thing. Lively and dynamic on the palate and not too hot. Nice balance and a decent finish. Savory and good with food.

Weekly Wednesday Wine Committee. Incredible hosting by Joe. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine, all tasted blind.

This really epitomized CdP. I called it 10yr old CdP. The black pepper has died down and integrated well with the spicy red fruit and underripe black fruit. Hint of tart/iron, but overall, this was really smooth. No problem open and enjoying these now.

Tawny to the edge, mostly transparent. Nice soft regal nose. Notes of dark fruit, herbs de Provence, plum and gravely soil. Nicely integrated fruit and structure. Pretty good juice.

Brambles, spices...almost reminded me of curry? Gained weight after 30min of air. Fun wine. Drink now.
