Gilles Robin Crozes-Hermitage 'Alberic Bouvet' 2014
Dark purple. Pungent, smoke-accented dark berry liqueur, olive paste and floral pastille scents, along with hints of cracked pepper and allspice. Juicy and penetrating on the palate, offering nicely concentrated yet lithe black and blue fruit flavors braced by juicy acidity. Smooths out nicely on the finish, which hangs on with strong, dark-fruited tenacity.
In a mixed or straight case: $47.49
