This extremely dense wine shows notes of black fruits (super ripe blackberries, black currants, black plum) black pepper, toast and strong notes of meat, blood, savory, smoke and tobacco. Rich and concentrated and will continue to evolve.

Massive extraction and elegance. Almost like an oxymoron. As a Rhône ranger this is near perfection. Will stand up against anything from anywhere. Charcuterie and crushed blackberry are predominate on the nose. Macerated cherry and smoked meats push the palate. Medium acidity and super long finish,make is so enticing. Still has a few years left on it. Find it and enjoy

A little disappointed - the palate reneged on the nose’s promise of dark cherries and an undercurrent of chocolate. Short and a little thin for me. Some great reviews out there of this wine, I wonder if I had an off-vintage or did I miss something?
