Very impressive full-bodied wine that tasted great right away upon opening. Highly recommended. Tasted July 2018.

Aged for 12 months in oak. Concentrated black currant, plum, dark chocolate, vanilla, olive, garrigue, baking spice, oak. Not much acidity going on, alcohol is a little overpowering at 14%, tannins have grip. Long finish of bitter dark chocolate and lavender. Great wine, great value from a great region.
