Deep ruby in colour with a medium intense nose.
An elegant Cháteauneuf-de-Pape
Positives: The dominance of Grenache shows up strongly here. This features light oak, mushroom, thyme, sage, black cherry, black currants, raspberry, plums, incense, forest underbrush and leather. Full body with medium to medium+ tannins, good acidity and a long length.
Negatives: A little hot from the 15.5% alcohol.
Interesting Point: Use a Syrah glass if you have one.
Drink now or over the next 7 years on its own or pair it with an aged rib eye steak.
