Nice to revisit this. Back in the day, this was our house wine ($20), but then it was awarded the Wine Spectator WOTY and overnight, the price doubled and that was that. New vintages are around $65, so it hasn't gone up a lot in 20 years since. Too bad, because while this might not be a top CdP, it is a very nice wine and this one has held up great. Ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, and Provencal spice. Light to medium bodied. Tannins completely integrated. On the palate, cherries with some char. Moderate finish. Drink up if you have any. A nice wine to serve with Pizza or Meatloaf.
