Big shoutout to my homey @winedog64 for sharing this steamroller of a CdP! Color is deep garnet. Nose is of stewed plum, florals and earth. Very closed with some heat when first opened. But give it 20 minutes and you start to notice real complexity as dried raisins, blood orange and grapefruit come alive. Raspberry, strawberry, licorice and walnut on the palate. Strong acidity, nutty tannins, dryish, yet nicely balanced with the succulent fruit flavors. Persistent finish. Good value in this Red Rhone. Consistently scores 90 – 91 points from the critics.
