2014 and 2013 Northern Rhône: Great Wines If You Can Find Them (Mar 2016)

Glass-staining ruby. Pungent, deep-pitched red berry and spicecake aromas are complicated by suggestions of smoky minerals and candied flowers. Juicy, focused and pure on the palate, offering vibrant raspberry and boysenberry flavors that put on weight and become spicier with air. Finishes with outstanding energy and persistence, displaying lingering spiciness and velvety tannins that sneak in slowly.
