Over the hill. 15% and blowing it hard . Confiture, caramel, old sweet Grenache notes. And sweet flavors. But heat mostly. Wine with character tho. Hard to actively dislike it. 2011. 18.5 euros in Paris wine store.

Definitely an earthy, mature, savory wine from the Heights Natural Wine shop in Houston. Tobacco, cherry pit, Coco nibs, tar, bitter almond, strawberry, decomposing leaves, a definite sanguine quality. Bit of cigarette smoke on the finish.

Must be Grenache heavy-- this reminds me of a traditional rioja with 10+ years on it.

This wine is not lacking in complexity. Moderate but enduring tannins and lively acidity, though I wish there was a bit more fruit that tasted as lively as the acidity still feels. Glad I bought it, but it definitely wasn't a party starter at the VanMeurers-- too geeky and funky.

This wine shines after some air. Blackberries, raspberries, black pepper, dried and fresh herbs, coffee grounds and a funky finish.
