Gleaming garnet red. The refined, harmonious nose mingles spices and peat, black fruit, laurel and rosemary. The palate is clean and incisive with well-integrated tannins. The fresh, slightly mineral attack precedes a host of Mediterranean aromas such as olive tapenade and fragrant garrigue, but also fruity notes such as blackcurrant and blackberry. This is a vintage full of charm which is capable of being cellared for several years.
