    Long time fan of Terre Rouge...my go to foothills Rhone fix! Pumped to see this show up at the local grocer, and on sale for $16! 43% Grenache, 43% Mourvedre, 14% Syrah...LOT of bottle caked on sediment...more Grenache dominant red fruited cherry and raspberry...really spicy and high toned brightness...is the dirt volcanic?...as it reminds me so...LOTS of crushed volcanic rock with crazy saline minerality and earth tones. Balanced well with some creamy and meaty Rhone goodness...smoky and spicy...again LOVE the red Kirsch-like brightness in this ala Chave...engaging briar patch rusticity...SO much complexity and attention grabbing for a wine at this price! In love here! (94 pts.)
