Intense dark blackcurrant and tarragon, cracked black pepper, dark cherry covered in dark chocolate on the nose. Palate rich, opulant, generous and sharing. Just an incredible amount of flavors to keep track. Black tea, more and more tarragon, black raspberry. Just a hint of alcohol at the finish. Every flavor and texture has direction and intention.

Pignan is a lesser cuvée made by Chateau Rayas. Leather, red currant with soft tannins. Medium bodied and delicious from a good year. 100% Grenache from the northern or cooler section of CdP. An excellent match with a wonderful chicken dish.

Bordering on ethereal! Complex, floral, savory nose; luscious, silky, deep and great length and structure. Thanks @Tran Hai for putting this on list at Mandolin - last bottle now consumed!

Pretty, floral, animal, tomato leaf, slightly juicy. The vintage is coming through. Prefer the 05, but not complaining!

Might have liked this more that '98 Beaucastel the night before. Is that ok?

Wow! Great vintage and definitely accessible now. Must rival the Rayas...silky, perfumed, ethereal, great structure and length. Need to find more!

Fantastic Grenache. Light to medium bodied, red fruits, earthy, complex, and nicely balanced. One of the stars of the night.
