Tasting Notes: The Aix has a higher percentage of syrah this year, and bears it out with a nose of wild berries, flowers, lavender and cured meats. The palate shows the freshness of the 2006 vintage with bright loganberries and orange blossom notes. The structure, while approachable now, promises plenty for the future, with fine-grained tannins and an almost Old World-Style acidity that will make it a great guest at the table.
