Purple/ruby in color. The nose is nice with black raspberries, slight raspberries, a bit of minerality and spice. On the palate, this is mid-weight. Drinking well right now. Light tannins. Good acidity. Ripe enough black raspberry fruit. This will work well with stews and roasts and is better with food. Some peppery qualities on the finish. Probably needs to be consumed in the next five years.
This was brought to a dinner party by a friend who reps the wine. It was the first time trying this winery, but of course 2015 is such a great vintage in the Northern Rhone that my expectations were high. Indeed, this wine delivers. It is an old school styled wine that really has a lot going on. It retails for around $25 which is a nice value. Purple in color, a bit flat in appearance. The nose is great but there is some funk/barnyard (if that bothers you). Also some plums, a bit of spice and black pepper. On the palate, this has light tannins. Good acidity. Black raspberries and
