Funkdafied black cherries with that barnyard funk.

Blind Rhône’s from Saturday. Impressive showing for such a young CDP. Bright cherry, full long finish. Still wound up a tad but in a surprisingly nice drinking window.

I had this vintage in France in 2013 and it was brier-y and tannic. 6 years has smoothed, softened and deepened this wine. We drank it with vintner Richard Sanford and his wife and all agreed it was beautifully balanced.

Lovely and lush and open. Mulberry, plum, spices and kirsch. Sage, and a saline complex finish. Very good.

Some sooty tarry notes. Light to medium bodied - lighter than I expected. After some time in the decanter the wine filled out and put on palate weight giving earthy plummy minerality on the now medium weight palate. Aromas of undergrowth and garrigue. 85% Grenache 9% Syrah 4% Mourvèdre and 2% assorted other varieties. From a cellaring viewpoint rather short term for a big name Chateaneuf du Pape.

Surprisingly mature. Already tertiary notes of tomato skin and turned soil. Palate is racy and alive. finish is resolved. Needs food.

Remarkably yummy CDP that easily kept company with the Hommage Perrins. Garrigue, blackberry compote and sweet earthy tobacco. I would hang on to this one a year or two more.

Excited to watch the 2015s age. Cracked one fresh and young to see—still pretty closed, but the dark, intense fruit is there with tons of acid and firm, green tannins. Like a stew that’s just gone into the pot, and all the individual bits are showing off their solo aromas, waiting to be slow-cooked into a rich, full, new whole
