Thursday night on the precipice of another closed in weekend. Tonight I have opened the 2017 Domaine Les Grands Bois Les 3 Soeurs Côte du Rhóne. A blend of 65% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 5% Carignan.

On the nose I am getting heavy savory notes, cured meat, black raspberry, black cherry, bacon fat, black pepper, burnt caramel, clove, cinnamon a d smokey oak.

On the palate there is black cherry, black raspberry, savory notes, smokey herbal notes, black pepper, licorice, baking spice and dark soil.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium to medium + fine tannins that leads right into a long dark brooding finish. This wine is still very young and needs time to fill out to show it's true self. We are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel for this pandemic we have been going through. Please continue to stay safe and continued health. Nostrovia!🍷🍷🍷🍷
