Vinous Media 90 Points- Bright purple. Smoky, spice-tinged black/blue fruit aromas open up slowly to show hints of violet and cured meat. Gently sweet and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors sharpened by a strong jolt of cracked pepper, which adds back-end bite. Supple tannins build slowly on the clinging finish, echoing the smoke and spice notes. This one would make a good ringer in a blind flight of Crozes-Hermitages.
