Domaine des Martinelles Crozes Hermitage 2004

84 points

Southern Rhone, France. 12.5%

Dark, youthful colour with magenta flashes. This is a ripe savoury black olive shiraz, slightly muddy, oddly dilute. I say oddly because the good colour doesn’t suggest it, but the acid is lacking, it’s all a tad dull yet there seems to have been some excellent fruit somewhere in this blend. Not expensive.
