Can’t beat this one in the QPR department if you’re a Rhone wine lover…Extremely dark garnet to ruby color. Soaring nose of black and green olive tapenade, leather, and blackberry. Really meaty on the palate with a good dose of olives, dried herbs, blackberry, and cassis. Finishes juicy and plump. By no means overblown…I think this will age well for a number of years and develop into something even better. A laughable QPR at the $16-$17 per bottle I picked up the half-case.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
