From the long and hot 2016 vintage, this offers a medium-high intensity nose that is spicy with black pepper and earth aromas. It is medium-full bodied on the palate with nice, spicy aroma replays, plus dark currant, dark berry, oak, and earthy flavours supported by fresh acidity. Nicely balanced with gritty tannins, while the finish length is very good. 28% Syrah, 28% Merlot, 19% Cab Franc, 14% Cab Sauv, 8% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. Tasted Jan/2019.
