Served with short ribs. Light ruby red color. Nose of raspberries, flowers and just a little bit of earthy funk to add some interest. Juicy red fruit flavors with a little bit of charred meat. A somewhat subdued but refined Cote Rotie that might be a little past its prime. Still very enjoyable on its own and very good with the meal. An exceptable QPR at the $29 I paid. 89 pts

Opened my other bottle this week. Similar to the first bottle but this one showed better. Still on the refined side, but showing more stuffing. Nice match with lamb kabobs. 91 pts
