Not bad, but not mind-boggling either. Rustic in style, with simple plum and spice aromas and flavors. A bit of black olive and bacon fat on first opening, but that dissipated quickly as it got air. Fruit came forward at the same time. You can do better for this price. NB: retasted 2/29 after preserving with inert gas. Total grenache fest now, with sweet fruit and very little spice now, just smooth drinking. Still not the best value in CdP, but not as dire as first thought.
