Soft and easy drinking Rhone. Nice raspberry aromas. Nice fruit flavors with a little peppery finish.
Had this wine a few years ago and thought that I would pay it a visit once again. This years vintage was not as well received on my palate or maybe my taste and expectations have changed. Found this wine to be a little thin and not very fruit forward. Heavy spice and floral on the nose, dry and green fruit to the taste. The finish is spicy that unfortunately lingers much too long. Great value wine from a winery with a great reputation that will go well with fish or chicken, but would not be my first, second or even third choice going forward.
Enjoyed meal with Ira. Mushroom Risotto and salad. 07.15.09 jb
