The 16 gorgy tastes & smells like a well made Chateauneuf du Pape.

Unmistakably Provençal in nature. Both the nose & palette are rich with dark fruits and wild savory herbs. There's an element of Southern Rhône funk in there but the youthfulness of the tannins and the fruit led by the Grenache give the wine lift and spirit. Wonderful essence of lavender. A fun wine with value to match.

35% Grenache, 18% Syrah, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Carignan

What a value, so much earthy goodness, really shows the Provençal dusty stony hillsides of resinous plants

Rich & ripe, kind of a baby Beaucastel. Great length & texture in the mouth. Red & black fruits with that telltale French funk in the nose. Really nice, but still youthful. Try again in 5 years

7 yrs old. But closed. Weird. Decent acidity. Low alcohol (12.5) . Organic grapes. Should be better. Some good barnyard flavor. What's up?

Very nice dark fruit with floral notes. Syrah, Grenache, & I think some Cab Sauv.

Opens up a lot after some time in the glass. Cherries, plums, and white pepper on the nose with a bit of hay / barnyard funk. Medium bodied. Mild acidity. Cherries and some minerality on the palate.
