Too many people drinking their 2010s too early. This just needed time in the cellar to come to life! Meat fat, deep red and blue fruits. Wonderful Grenache fruit comes out with about an hour's decant. Brambly red currants and sour cherries blend with savory herbs on the palate. No heat and a surprising dose of acidity and tannins.

A touch sweet through the palate but not without length and an interesting earthiness.

Lovely, as usual. A little overpowered by steak, but a joy nonetheless.

Really tight at first. Needs some serious air.

A bit young but should get better with a few more years in bottle

Very easy drinking, pairs well with rich meats. Black berries and mid acidity.

Wonderful! Always love the style of Rasteau, but the quality is not usually this high. Very dark fruit and great complexity. Beautiful herby finish.
