Fruit: black, jammy stone fruit. Blueberry Vegetable: green pepper opened up to black pepper Spice: a bit of black pepper hits your throat Earth: truffle, musty cellar dirt Meat: bacon?, sweat Choc/cof/tea: Cocoa nib, earl gray tea Other: leather Body: medium Balance: a bit hot, pushing a bit out of balance Structure: elegant, delicate Finish: like a long whisper
Really a very nice wine. Outstanding for the relatively low price point of a chateauneuf. Great with stews or roasts. Gorgeous garnet color. Bright red fruit on the nose. Bright cherries with lingering spice on the palate. Extra long finish. Roadted meat?
