Red Blend 2017
Rhone, France, $22.99

“(a blend of vintages 2011, 2012, 2013; raised in used barriques): Ruby-red. Aromas of musky red fruit, candied flowers, cured meat and garrigue take on a smoky mineral element in the glass. Sweet and penetrating, offering juicy raspberry and cherry flavors and a zesty jolt of white pepper. Shows very good intensity and fruity punch on the finish, which is shaped by silky, even tannins.” Josh Raynolds, Vinous June 2016.
