Really enjoyed this at IB&WS society November event. Lots of acidity and very fresh dark fruits but also plenty of aged tertiary flavors in the form of black pepper, herbs and smoky spices. Lots of funky Northern Rhone character with hints of game and forest floor on the spicy, complex, grippy finish. A unique wine.

Bramble, blackberry, liquorice showing a lot of fruit on the front. Quite a short finish. Very enjoyable tastes years younger than it is

Oddbods Colchester Tasting Group – Plucked from the Auctions. (Back Room, Victotia Inn): Rich and brambly, there an undercurrent of meat and leaf litter. Velvety finish. This is holding up and was thought to be much younger. Joint WOTN
