Medium to dark garnet in color; perfumey aromas of roses and garrigue and wild strawberries. In the mouth, bright berries, cherry and lavender mix with gravely minerals and fine grained tannins. The finish is tinged with white pepper and Kirsch.

On the nose, ripe dark cherries, blackberries, black raspberries, black cherry cola/licorice, pepper, medium spices, leather, underbrush, stones, crush rocks, very fragrant red roses and red dark florals. On the palate; the body is lean, medium soft tannins, black raspberries, black berries, dark cherries, cherries, poached strawberries, dry cranberries, black cherry cola, peppery, medium spice, tobacco leaf with ash, lean leather, light grilled meats, underbrush, gritty dark minerals, red roses and dark fresh florals, light presence of violets & good acidity. Nicely balanced finish and easy to drink young. Photos of their vineyard and large oak fermenters. Hard to believe you can farm anything in that terrain let alone vines, huh? 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 6% Mourvèdre & 4% Cinsault.

Juicy, ripe-tending towards overripe prune notes-but nevertheless delicious. 49€ at Les Dents de Loup.

Nice red blend...a bit on the light side, but great complexity. Enjoyed at the Victoria Jungfrau Hotel & Spa.

The lightest, most restrained Chateauneuf du Pape I've had. Interesting alternative!

Delish. Very smooth for a cdp (not to sound my father in law whose favorite wine is $7 Pinot)
