A nice mid ruby colour and an exprsessive nose. Quite complex - cherry fruit with herb/garrigue, baking spice, anise, pepper, salami (mourvedre) and minerality. The palate is medium/full bodied with dusty tannins (still young, mourvedre) and excellent length. A sour late palate (mourvedre) followed by some alcohol burn keeps my rating just shy of 90. But very good value nonetheless. June 2015.

It's only wine but I like it

Soft, with flavours of stewed fruits and hints of herbs. Seems a bit muddled and lacking in focus. Lacks the structure and complexity of a Villages level wine. Enjoyable enough but failed to really impress me. For current consumption. Tasted Oct 2015.
