@Delectable Wine La Bessade.

Served blind to me (after aerating 2+ hours in the decanter) I guessed this as:
1. Napa CS
2. Syrah (possibly from WA)
3. Cornas
4. Crozes-Hermitage
5. I give up....

Can I now please apply for a job as contractor, pet-walker, welder, school teacher, anything....

Still needs a bit more time but developing nicely. Black cherry, plum, and spice. Decanted for 30 minutes but really needs more than that at this point.

3L!! Crusty wax took about 10 flakey minutes with a knife trying to break through. Totally worth the effort. Goat cheese and brownies-, unlikely pairings but absolutely delicious.

Decanted for 2 hrs.
Great with Easter Turkey dinner.
BlackBerry, plum, tobacco, cedar, leather, and a bit of mint.
Drinking well now after a long decent but will improve more with age.

Good for an “OK” year - a little thin on the finish.
