An edgy Rasteau - hot and spicy but also nicely balanced and showing a good deal of refinement. Pretty floral...

This young Rhone shows fairly lifted savoury, vaguely meaty, dried currant-cherry fruit with somewhat resinous oak....

The aroma is full of oak, leather, star anise and plums. The taste has strong syrah character with black pepper notes. High alcohol with medium plus acid. A good bottle.
