It needs some air; let it breath for an hour or so. Only then, does the tannic hold loosen its grip to reveal a softer wine with generous amounts of blackberry, plum and hints of dried red currant intermixed with earthy undertones. A slightly green herbal note lingers throughout. Tasted Nov 2011

It's only wine but I like it

I am going against the grain with this one - I was not overly impressed with this wine. Now, I love Cotes du Rhone, but I found this a bit short in fruit and high in herbeceousness. Also, a bit hollow in the mid-palate as well. Disappointing given the positive reviews I have read. Bottle variation?
