An outstanding CdP. A blend of 60% Grenache, 25% Mourvèdre and the rest Counoise, Vaccarèse and Muscardin. This is ripe, juicy and delicious if not the "classic" CdP in style. Purple in color, ruby swirls. On the nose this has boysenberries, sandalwood, char and slight floral notes. On the palate, this is juicy with big boysenberry fruit. There is a nice under layer of spice. Long finish. One of those wines that each sip tastes so good you want to have another. It will be interesting to see this age and lose the baby fat. Probably should last another fifteen years anyway. Will work well with roasts and stews or roasted veggies.
