Fully tuned up and ready to drink with all the food you can throw at it. Villages quality stability with dried raspberries, red plums, and red ruby grapefruit up front from the Grenache, but a spicy black pepper and gaminess from the Syrah keeps the back end savory. Finishes herbal with notes of Garrigue found in the Mediterranean soils of the Southern Rhône. Acid is dialed in nicely, and you get more grape tannins rather than wood tannins. Noticeable cinnamon, clove, and saddle from neutral oak treatment. In no way does it get in the way of the fruit. Thanks for letting me think out loud, #delectable
