Complex and evolving nose of bright cherries, strawberry, fruit pie , savory herbs and a hint of cinnamon.
Full bodied with plenty of acidity and tannin for the appellation. Lots of red fruit and spice on the palate with a long and generous finish.
The only quibble here is a touch of heat from the high alcohol-although this is still very fresh.
This is drinking fine now and will last another 5 years or so.
I purchased this at the winery in December 2012. Got this for a song (I believe about 15 Euro) and I can't overstate how well my family was treated by the owner and his wife. Amazing estate for the price/quality ratio .
Very good, but not (yet) exceptional, the old grenache grapes deliver the smoothness and the mourvèdre gives the subtlety. A ripe bouquet with cream and soft spices and a round and ripe midtaste. In the aftertaste the backbone supports with a gentle freshness; however I hope to find a little bit more in the next bottle.
