It's only wine but I like it

This CdP certainly has some authentic southern Rhone attributes. Very spicy and peppery, with loads of herbs mixed in. But there is a dearth of joyous fruit that make wines of the south Rhone so endearing. Also, there is considerable bitterness and sharp acidity. Yet another disappointing CdP - will stick with cheaper Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Rasteau from now on. Tasted Dec 2017.
