This is a classic Rhône style blend with lots of depth on the palate with spice and black berry on the nose. Mulberries and whiffs of cinnamon, dried herbs and liquorice with very subtle spices in the background. On the palate there’s fruit at first, a structured mid-palate, with lovely elegance, finishing with silky savoury tannins. This wine has a sinewy strength to keep it in perfect shape for +5 years.
