Slightly funky fermented flower nose -

A thick and juicy wine - easy to get into - hefty, with black cherry, dark berry blend, pinch of anise, pepper. Cherry skin tannins, with a zesty acidic overture.
An excellent wine!

Color of light purple, quite clear. Nose of intense wet mushroom, raspberry, spice, a bit violet, and some strength of alcohol. Nose is vibrant and plenty. Taste follows the nose, with addition of zest, spiciness, some sweetness of cantaloupe, and soft tannins. Aftertaste is clean and tasty. Really good.

Needs more time. Decanted for a 45 minutes and really needed more time. Shows great potential. Big dense dark fruit and tannins at this time.

Disappointing Gigondas. Nothing to get excited about; skip it next time

Ripe sweet forest fruit, with a touch of black pepper and allspice. Great juicy acidity balancing the sweetness, fine tannins. Seems weightless despite the 14,5% alc.
You gotta love Grenache!

Ripe red fruits, tobacco, tar, black pepper, and plenty of spice. This is a full wine with lots of character. Delicious.
