Fruit forward. Soft structure. More modern in style.

Blind Rhône’s from Saturday. Very primary but shows its pedigree even now. Blackberry kirsch, roasted dark chocolate espresso, smooth lines and undeniable purity of fruit. Just not fully blossoming quite yet. The ‘06 I had in November was exceptional so perhaps 5 years is an appropriate hold suggestion.

Youthful, bright, long, maybe a touch gritty, and green in the best kind of way.

Tasted blind. Dark ruby almost opaque. Black fruit notes with some wood notes and a little pepper and spice. Rich. Guessed Rhône but was surprised to see it being Cornas. Not as exotic as younger bottles of this. At peak and clearly ready for consumption.
