($48) Opaque ruby. Pungent raspberry and blackberry aromas are complicated by minerals and dried flowers. Lively red fruit flavors gain depth in the middle palate and pick up a deeper cherry pit quality. The finish repeats the cherry note and leaves notes of licorice and smoky minerals behind. I'd give this a few more years of aging, at the least.

Agree with others on the flavors of fig and dark fruits. Drinking really well now, but just hitting its stride. Another 5-7 years plus and this should get even better.

Less fruit forward than some of the other 2007 Rhone wines so far (mostly Gigondas at this stage). Probably a little early for this, as still has an alcohol "burn." But, it has very nice fig and dark fruit flavors now.
GIFT from FBC £25.56 Made mainly from Grenache in the famous Chateauneuf -du -Pape region of the Rhone valley, this is a full-bodied red with blackberry, pepper and spice flavours. Ideal with roast beef. Drink 2012 to 2020
