RIPE fruit - jammy strawberry, blueberry and black cherry. Tannins are big and chunky, the 2017 would probably be best around 2024. It comes across as a bit hot and over-extracted, it if you’re in the mood for that sort of thing at least it does it without being smothered in new oak. If you’re looking for a super concentrated Southern Rhône wine, this fits the bill.

A beautiful take on a southern blend. This sat alongside some heavy hitters from the Rhone & held up beautifully. Fresh ripe strawberry notes coat the palate. Silky & easy to enjoy.

From the import store on Connecticut Ave. Fall spices, lightish, full nose but watery mouthfeel. Good to drink.

Medium bodied red. Allowed it to open up for 30 minutes. Was consistent throughout the bottle. Red fruit, smooth tannins, a hint of spicy finish. Solid table wine. Tim loved the cork (Grilled sirloin, fresh salad, saffron rice & smoked duck- compliments of Aaron!!)

Sour plums and cherries crushed on limestone, tight but balanced, nice lingering finish
