This was a bit heavy, but not necessarily in an international style. Ripe fruit, ink, some spice, but not much, if any, oak and it was balanced with a decent acidity. I've not had much from the area, so I don't know the style, but this was not so heavy or over-oaked that I was disappointed. Perhaps better for a cold night with some red meat involved. Rebuy: maybe.
Decanted for ~1 hour. Nice dark berries, integrated acidity and a good spicy/mineral component, that you would expect form a southern french red. Not much tannins, no oak, no remarkable texture. It's nice to drink, tasty, but nothing special. For € 8,60 there is definately better stuff to buy, especially within that region.
