Musty barnyard, wet hay and decomposing compost.
Just the way a CDP should smell like.

Saline forefront, medium bodied with dark dried fruits, mint, anise, ole battery acidity.

Lingering licorice, and stirring acidity

100% Grenache, which isn't outrageous but it is pretty unique considering the traditional GSM blends of the region. Dark, juicy, and delicious. Black plum, clove, black pepper, crushed rock, and violets - silky pallet feel, spicy finish, and when paired with spicy food, the sweet plum and cherry fruits surface.

Pretty good. Good balance a little peppery. Great with lamb steaks

Nothing to dramatic in any direction, nothing completely wrong with it either. After decanting, finish drops off some

Tres Bon!! Lots of spice and very fruit forward. Really softened up after an hour decant. Full bodied Rhone, but primarily Grenache which explains the spice. Long, pleasant finish. Yummy.
