Nice nose: blueberry, herbs.
Full bodied, lots of flavour: Tangy earthy-fruity currant and blackberry, herbal/licorice, smoke. Tastes like a Rhone wine! Good balance, lot's going on.
I liked this, Great value.

I'd agree with the positive reviews listed below (and above), but I found that the acidity wasn't well integrated and a little harsh on the way down. Could have been a slightly off bottle, or I just wasn't open to receiving the wine that day. But there was lots of good things going on with this wine.
Very deeply coloured. On the nose, some spice and dark berries, but dominating is an overwhelming funk and alcohol. On the palate, the initial sense is a dense, deep wine but then that funk hits and very alcoholic. I suppose that some may say that this funk is terroir, but I call it a flaw. I usually love the wines of the south of France but this not nice. A shame, as this producer has impressed in the past. Perhaps an off bottle?
