A nose full of earthy old leather, dried herbs, and stewed plums. Nice lingering finish on a lower end CDP.

Great wine. Brownish tinge. Leather on the nose. Just ripe berry for fruit. BlackBerry possibly? Mostly currant to me. There's some spice as well towards the end.

Fuller, bigger bodied, and more contemporary styled Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Keep it for 1 or 2 more years.

A very good (but not off-scale) CdP, this wine exhibits a lot of primary fruit and spice on the nose, but did not have the depth on the palate that I was expecting. Was also surprised how soft it was for such a young wine (was expecting to have to decant it). Don't know if 2012 was a warm vintage or not, but this was much less tannic than I thought. A good wine, but was expecting a bit more.
