A lovely, limpid blood red colour, with an intensely aromatic nose, combining curry spices and garrigue herbs, with notes of spiced orange, forest floor and leather, all wrapped around a core of summer fruits. The palate is quite powerful and mouth-filling, with an array of redcurrant, cherry and plum fruit flavours, again with a hint of spiced orange. Firm but ripe, tea-like tannins combine with juicy acidity and a hint of licorice, making for a delightfully tangy, sweet-sour style, with a long, mouth-watering finish. A really enjoyable wine.
