The nose is very fruity, with notes of redcurrant and blackberry jam, mixed with pretty woody notes. An aromatic intensity (wild
strawberry, spices) is found in a full, silky and fresh mouth, supported by velvety tannins.
Full red color; the bouquet isn’t prominent at the moment, has a cool, iron-like tenor, with discreet blueberry, dark berry fruit within, not yet on general release. The palate shows more open vigor, delivers spiced, rumbustious content, prune flavoring, dark tannins still on the prowl. There’s plenty in the glass, both from the nose and the palate in time. It’s a thorough, grounded Cairanne with life in its expression. 14°. 57% Gren, 24% Syr, 12% Mourv, 6% Cari, 1% Counoise.
