With its earthy core of rocks, minerals, and herbs, this Syrah-Grenache-Carignan blend certainly reflects its Roussillon terroir. It's a bit rough and rustic, but there's a great deal of care underlying the food-friendly elegance. The problem is that you keep waiting for the dark fruit, which builds on the nose, to burst onto the palette, and it never really does, and so despite intriguing notes of cherry, raspberry, pine, licorice, leather, and graphite, the overall flavour is muted and flat. That said, if given enough time (and it needs a lot of it to open up), it has much to recommend it.
Was very dissapointed with this one, too astringent for my liking this year.
