Randall Grahm’s hommage to Châteauneuf, and their official banning of UFO landings in the town in 1954. A wine (and label) that had great comedy value, although value for money was less good. A nice wine overall, but lacked the complexity and interest I was hoping for. A Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre blend. Deep-ish cherry core. Spicy, jammy fruit with a little cocoa. Cherry fruit flavour with some pepper. Medium length at best, unfortunately.
