This blend of 55% Syrah along with with 25% Grenache and 20% old vines Carignan and Mourvèdre opens with fabulous blueberry aromas -- rich, sweet, and concentrated like blueberry pie. There's other blue and black fruit as well, but before long characteristic southern French elements emerge and overtake the fruit, notably black pepper, garrigue, herbs, meat, and a touch of barnyard funk. It's fine, all in all, and these more savoury notes go well with food, but the combination of a certain feral quality, rather bitter tannins, and diminishing fruit leaves a lot to be desired.
