Alain Graillot 2013 Crozes-Hermitage, Rhone Valley, France
Vinous.com rating: 91..."(made with 100% whole clusters): Bright purple. Energetic black raspberry, cherry, Asian spices and olive paste on the seductively perfumed nose. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering juicy red and dark berry liqueur flavors and a suave note of candied violet. Picks up spiciness and smokiness with air and finishes on a sweet dark berry note, with good nervy cut and floral persistence."
