'11, tough to put my finger on it.. Unique slightly funky smell and flavor (gotta love the funk!) with complex dark fruit. Not a ton of structure and a little astringency, but for $20 a good deal nonetheless

Very tannic for a Rhone blend - still young - has potential ... But will be waiting a while - decanting 2 -24 hrs didn't help

Showing a little oxidation on the nose, but much younger on the palate with a little leather, ripe plum, and slightly gritty tannin.

Most definitely funky, with some dried meats and barnyard. Not necessarily a bad thing, but 2011 is a food wine only. Mouvedre overload?

Rypäleestä ei tietoa, aika tamminen, liekö tammilastuja lillutettu. Tuoksuu kait mustamarjaviinilehdiltä ja lakritsitlta.

Let it breath longer (over 24 hours), it will taste better.
