From 60 year-old vines Carignan, this has a medium+ intensity nose of dark cherry, black currant, herbs and spices. It's full bodied very good fruit concentration and very nice aroma replays plus stony mineral notes adding interest. It has very good, fresh acidity, textured tannins, and long finishing that is a touch warming, but still balanced. Tasted Jan/2020.
