Lovely nose. Spicy dark berries, crushed rock dust, roasted savory herb-crusted lamb. It’s surprisingly crisp with acidity in the mouth, buoying up savory, minerally flavors. Back label says it’s only 12.5%!

I love these wines. Big, ripe, peppery nose. Lots of vivid dark black fruits. Palate is mouth-filing and complex with terrific freshness and so much granitic minerality. Very juicy. Terrific wine drinking great now. Amazingly balanced and pure.

Big and round Crozes. It's a No. Rhone night and I like this one most of all. It's funky. @grapelyle

Bottled in September. Big perfumed nose. Lovely and deep. Terrific acids and perky. Really bright.

This is magical. Good solid backbone but with crazy good fruit. Age it, you ask? Sure, if I could resist it. Which I couldn't.

Grapey, spicey, juicy and very young vine vibe but so clean and fresh.

A little too much fruit for me, but quite good

Nose takes a while to open, but then beautiful smoky cracked stones, floral notes, and pure pure blackberry fruit. Not a big wine, but very fresh, clingy flavors of sultry berry pressings and cracked stones. Soft texture and fresh acids. Nice with my Portuguese linguica rice.
