Tasted blind, I thought this was a Châteauneuf du Pape. It had a lot less acidity than I might have expected but such is blind tasting. The wine itself was much better than my blind tasting abilities. Ruby in color, mostly clear and bright. The nose has cherries, some black cherries, spice, black licorice and slight floral notes. Full bodied. On the palate, this is drinking well. Medium tannins. Plenty of black cherry fruit with some licorice on the finish. It drinks well on its own and would work nice with a pizza. Drink over the next seven to ten years.
