A blend of 60-year-old Carignan (80%) and Mourvèdre (20%) that was dry farmed, this has a lovely medium-high intensity nose with pretty floral, clove, purple fruit and sweet spices. The medium-full bodied palate has blackberry, brambly and sweet spice flavours supported by very good acidity and good tannic structure. Finish length is excellent. Best over the next 3-4 years. Tasted Nov/2016. Score: 90+ pts
