Alain Graillot, Crozes-Hermitage 2014, Rhone, France
Tasting Note: Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has a pronounced and aromatic nose of red cherry, violet, raspberry, blossom and game.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied red blend has a creamy texture with flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is medium-plus in fine, dusty tannin with medium-plus flavor intensity and acidity.
The wine is very good quality because of floral notes that present well and pair with the primary flavors in the wine.
Drink now; has aging potential.
