Exactly what I look for from Southern Rhone, especially at this price. Lots of black fruit, verging on to jammy/liqueur notes, along with baking spice and pepper on the nose. Medium-full bodied on the palate with slightly grippy tannins and reasonable acidity. This is definitely a ripe wine, but it's nice and balanced. A lovely wine to open on a cold night. Terrific value. Tasted November 2013.
