Deep ruby. Lively aromas of fresh, spice-tinged dark berries and candied flowers pick up a suggestion of smoked meat as the wine opens up. Clean and nervy in style, offering energetic blackberry and bitter cherry flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Finishes sweet, silky and long, leaving a note of violet pastille behind.

A touch of brett to start. Loads of black raspberry after on the nose and a touch of olive brine. Fruit driven on the palate softer acid than I like in a Crozes, and softer tannin than anticipated. Seems like it should be drunk in the near term.

Dark berries, minerality and black pepper on the nose. Delicate dark fruit on the palette. Balanced tannins. Harmonic finish.
