This is drinking quite well right now. Reminiscent of a Crozes Hermitage. Purple in color, ruby at the rim. The nose has black raspberries, roasted meats and some minerality. On the palate, this has some complexity. Good acidity. Lots of black raspberry fruit. Nice finish. This is food friendly and would be great with roasts or stews. It won't get better but no hurry as it has five to ten years left at peak.
