Here I am again with a pop goes the bramble weasel moment. Even at a listed 15.5 alcohol (certainly a lie) this beast had some elegance and subtlety. I think it's a testament to terroir. Even over ripe as this is (to me) it has the depth, and more importantly, width of flavors to hold up to the glycerin floating on top, like grease from my father-in-law's chili cook-off, red ribbon special. On the third day it seems that the wine rested a bit, and it sang a good hymn with my bacony crepinette.

Great floral perfume and fresh red fruit. Rich spice and great tart Grenache acid. Lightness that escape some producers in 07. I can't get enough of this. Tonight's #wotn

Sweetness in a glass and I'm not talking residual sugar. 15.5% alc on the label but extremely balanced for '07. On the edge of being over-ripe: yes. But what a compelling glass of wine.

2007 vintage. Blockbuster, all fruit, peppery. Way too young
