Peppercorn, peppercorn, peppercorn. Ripe red cherry, jammy plum, dried leaves, dried rosemary. Baked earth. High tannins, medium minus acidity, 15%. Hmm

With a spectacular roasted chicken,l and roasted ratatouille, this was a very well received by an old, out-of-town foodie friend.
Should have decanted as at the end of the bottle is was singing with dark chocolate, mint and orange zest.

Dark tawny color, barely translucent. Impactful red fruit nose. Notes of raspberries, herbs de Provence, red cherries, pepper and some freshly cut wood. Lots going on in the mouth. Big fruit, still powerful acidity and a lengthy finish. Blind you might guess this as red burg, which is the norm for Charvin. Great stuff.

Tawny color. Great herbal nose. Notes of red fruit, herbs de Provence, kirsch, some brown spice and a little sour cherry. Nicely balanced in the mouth. In a great drinking window, I don’t thing this gets any better with more age.

Great intensity. Hot but balanced with smooth and firm tannins. Expressive ripe red and black fruit. Good energy, and complexity. Nice length. Needs time!

Lacked intensity with almost no nose even after 1 hr in the decanter. Eventually woke up but never showed the intensity of the 15. High toned red fruit. More secondary notes including some green notes. Palate was not in balance with slightly bitter tannins alcohol was noticeable. Moderate complexity and length

Dark plums and figs, black cherry, rosemary, thyme, tar and tobacco. Very intense and ripe- all fruit and quite bright.

Another visit to the weekly Wednesday Wine Committee, and a wonderful hosting by Glenn. As always, all wines are tasted blind. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert.

Very similar to number 2 red. The age here balanced out the ripeness of the fruit from becoming too overpowering, but the secondary herbal notes of black pepper and baking spice weren’t overbearing either. I would say this seemed a touch more fruit forward than the wine prior. Little darker.
