2015 warm vintage, juicy blackberries and ripe black cherries, Grenache at its juiciest. Word to big bird.

Murky ruby. Transparent. Gamey nose. Notes of plum, earth, white pepper, herbs. Big and masculine in the mouth, but mellowed with air time. Very CdP-ish showing the full power of Rhone varietals.

I'm not sure I love how these super modern chateauneufa evolve in bottle. Very port like on the nose. On the palate very nice. Soft and velvety. I prefer more old school cdp with age whereas a prefer the more modern style while they are young. I'd be interested to try this again in 5-10 years

First taste is a bit hot and disjointed. Super disappointing, as previous bottles have been phenomenal.

The nose is a 96. It's not on the palate. Not sure what's up...

Like Sonoma Coast Pinot, except infused with white pepper.

Decanted for six hours. 100% Grenache and 100% pleasure. Another fabulous 2007 CdP.
