Wine Details

Syrah dominant, this wine is instantly big and meaty in the glass with ripe purple florals, sumptuous black cherry and leather notes. The entry is fabulously rich yet glycerin smooth with waves of ripe, peppery plum, meaty blackberry and coffee notes finishing with earthy, peppery tannins.

Cam Confidential

One of my favorite Châteauneuf producers, Clos du Mont-Olivet also produces this delicious and considerably robust Côte du Rhône cuvée as an homage to their grandfather, A. Seraphin. Perfect for grilled meats but sublime with lamb. If you like the deeper more robust Rhone reds, this is your wine!

Nice musky mineral nose. Light tannins Nice finish but not a lot of fruit. No reason to keep this wine any longer. Drink up!
Some of the CA red blends are better values but are a completely different style of wine.
