This is a very pretty, quite bright young red with fragrant aromas of rosemary, pepper, lilac and plummy/blackberry...

This is an interesting blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Mouvedre from Faugeres in the Languedoc. I got significant funk on the nose that was reluctant to blow off with time. Blackberry and other dark fruit with herbal greenness, dill, black tea, pepper, tobacco and leather, and a scorched tarry element. Fairly tannic with medium acidity to provide firm structure. Very good to excellent length. Lots of complexity for the price point. Feb. 2015.
