This mouth-puckering concoction has a deep cherry robe and a mute nose of currants with a hint of blueberry. There is some stemminess on the bouquet as well - possibly due to the Mourvedre component. The wine is more structured, less juicy and less unctious than more Grenache-dominated Rasteau, but the mouth-feel suggests aging to 2017 or 2018. An almond-like acerbity on the finish and a slightly weak fruit core are the only detractions at this point. Good value. 88 points.

Comprised of Grenache, Cinsault and Carignane, this simple style CDR is very pretty in color and the aromas come off rather succinctly: violet, wood, vanilla and earth. Tart cherry is most prevalent, with soft tannins and a gentle midpalate. There is an undertone of stewed fruit here that lingers in the end, but the tartness cleans it right up. If braised short ribs are your thing, this is your wine.

This has nice ripeness and cut, with linzer torte and blackberry fruit supported by bright acidity and backed by a lingering, toasted spice finish. Very tasty. Drink now.


Winemaker's Notes:

Deep ruby red with aromas of red fruit and spice, nicely structured with a peppery finish. Its favourite Food: Farmhouse charcuterie, roast calf’s liver, veal sauté with olives, lamb cutlets.
