Very nice wine. Still remarkably youthful for a wine of this age. Deep, dark plum red color. Nice nose of kirsch and dried herbs. Shows surprisingly plush cherry and garrigue on the palate with some leather and earth. Solid Finish. I wouldn’t call this wine exciting, but it was a great buy at $25 on closeout. 3,300 cases made. A blend of 90% Grenache and the rest Counoise, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Cinsault.

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.
