Quite ripe, delivering dark plum, anise and crushed blackberry fruit notes laced with a graphite spine. A nice grippy edge marks the finish. Drink now.

Slightly richer with sweeter fruit and additional ripeness as well as higher alcohol is the Andre Brunel 2009 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Cuvee Sabrine. This Grenache-dominated offering possesses a dark ruby/purple-tinged color in addition to lots of lavender, black currant and cherry notes intermixed with notions of forest floor and tobacco leaf. Drink this medium to full-bodied 2009 over the next 2–3 years.

Dark and intense, with notes of roasted meat, plum and black olive that give way to an espresso note and chalky tannins on the finish. Pretty stern stuff, which just means you’ll want to give it another year or two before drinking it over the next 5–6 years.

Mostly Grenanche in this Rhône blend. The nose is a bit on the sweet side, with wild berries and pepper, but the palate brings it back to a more traditional style with a touch of acidity. Have this wine with some hardy winter stews or a pork roast with rosemary and garlic.
