Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Dark ruby with some development at the rim. Already quite a complex nose with garrigue notes. Lots of sweet fruit but lots of charm and even a certain amount of transparency too.

    Dark red. Impressively deep and expansive on the nose, with aromas of fresh red berries, kirsch, smoked meat, licorice and lavender. Juicy and quite sweet, with focused red and dark berry flavors, a mouthcoating texture and supple tannins. The finish is deep, powerful and very long, with a whiplash of ripe cherry and a late mineral note.

    Rating: 3/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Quite concentrated, rather earthy bouquet but good ripeness. Makes up in earthiness what it lacks in elegance. Drink 2009-12.
