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.

Quite fresh and lean (for CNdP) on the nose. Rounded plush cherry with some sour notes. Not to o intense and pretty. Good

A soft, plush nose with cherries, garrigue. A lovely balanced mid palate. This is all generous soft edged Grenache and spice. A cooler year, which works great for me. Delicious.

Somewhat better than I expected after about an hour of air.

Lovely and forward. Open spicy fruit and deep rich herbal red currant. This is cooler blooded than some, clear and complex. Lovely
