Smooth and lush with rocky, minerality. Needed some Chave in my life!

Ripe upfront, with enduring black fruit, peppery cured meats and mineral back bone. Among the beat $25 reds in the world?

Upfront and transparent and confrontational. Strong posture. Wears a leather jacket in the summer. Blood and rust and repressed tears and a grainy black and white western. Cigarettes that he rips the filter off of to make them stronger.

Solid Northern Rhone. Dark fruit, black pepper and a touch of barnyard. Definitely developing

Bright and smoky with a bit of Syrah barnyard funk, and black pepper. Hint of raspberry?

A less serious version of a more serious wine? It works...

A little muted on the nose. It did open up a bit over time though. On the palate, nicely tannic blackberry fruit, leather and graphite. Enjoyable but I expected more for ~$30
