Pretty good but a little tight. Decanting will help. It is what you would expect from Grenache based Rhone.

Smoked, peppered venison with tobacco and black cherries. Silky smooth with well balanced acid with transitions into well integrated tannin. Cherry and red currant linger on the finish. This opened up significantly over an hour. Give this decant and enjoy over the next few years.

Slightly Brett, red/black cheery, blackberry, blueberry, currant and prune. Fruit are ripe. Prominent Black pepper, subtle cinnamon, nutmeg, with some mint and herb de Provence and violet on the nose, slightly licorice, med to med plus body, smooth tannin, med to med plus acidity. Great wine for its price.
