It’s gorgeous from stem to stern. We tasted it straight out of the bottle in addition to a good-time of decanting and while different experiences between the two- this is a luscious, GORGEOUS blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre- and a splash of Viognier. It’s the perfect bottle to take to pair with lamb, steak- SHRIMPIES, whatevs. We were blown away. It is NOT cheap- but with regard to value- I’ve yet to meet its equal.

Big and robust. Dark fruits with herbaceous notes. Oak and vanilla round a lengthy finish.

Love the texture of this, aroma is sweet fruit and baking spices. Creamy Black cherry, spice, mint? Like this a lot.

We opened this yesterday, and it has improved with exposure to air. It’s become more plush, open knit and inviting, while not being over/bearing. Lovely spice-box and cedar nose leads into rich cherries on the mid-palate. Medium weight, with medium sweetness, which finishes with roundness and moderate acidity. Very enjoyable, and love the label!

Smells like the Rhone. Dirty, musk, purple fruit, nice acid, staunch tannin.
