My first Cinsault in recent memory. Purple in the glass with a very interesting nose. Dominated by notes of stewed blueberry, pencil shavings, pepper, and cigar box. Underlying hints of strawberry with a smokey, medicinal, and resinous quality. Medium plus body with very fine tannins. Length is very good.

Light to medium ruby colour with nice juicy cherry and cola notes. Very pleasant with nice balance and fresh acidity.
