Cracking good 2012- lots of acidity and focus. Excellent CDR Blanc.

Grenache is more dominant than the Syrah... it was initially quite acidic, but by the end of the glass I couldn't get enough. The air helped quite a bit.

Chocolate covered raspberries followed by some clove and spice. High tannins and alcohol content. This is a very full bodied wine from the Rhone, France.

2014. A little effervescent and nice depth.

Bright clean black cherries and blackberries. The higher Grenache percentage is very apparent. Still very fresh and young, but yielding. Falls a little flat in the middle but quaffabble nevertheless.
