Pop and pour. Improves with air time but great out of the bottle after about a year in my cellar. Nose with notes of sour dark fruit, moist fur, scrubland, a bit of dust and mineral. In the mouth big, rustic, ripe neither sweet nor sour fruit (dark plum and berry, not sure about cherry) with tastes similar to the nose plus notes of chocolate and licorice and perhaps olives. Fades in balance similar to the mouth and nose. Consistent, rich, and complex from nose to mouth to finish which to me means high quality for the price as tested, USD10. Dry. Body medium or higher, acid medium, tannin medium or higher. Great QPR. 90 plus.

Delicious red wine with good balance between fruit, tannins, and acid; big but not over-the-top, somewhat rustic. Wine is slightly over-extracted and not filtered which enables it to reveal wonderful terroir including an herb-olive patina that would go great with regional cooking using similar herbs. Dark black and red fruits, deep color, slightly spicy, herbal, good volume in the mid-palate, aromatic on the attack. Suggest decant for 30-45 minutes and keep cool around 60 deg F for maximum enjoyment.

This wine has the deep fruit that you would expect from this terroir and a du Pape. Excellent wine for the price.
