A deep-ish, translucent cherry red colour, this wine displays a really quite intoxicating and hugely complex nose, redolent of crystallised red and black cherries and berries, garrigue herbs, black pepper, freshly-baked bread, soused dark fruitcake and a waft of burning incense. It is also delightfully high-toned and fresh, both on the nose and palate, offering myriad fresh red and black fruits and spiced Christmas cake flavours, again with notes of dried herbs. A cloak of fine, ripe tannins and a core of juicy, citrus-tinged acidity complete the package. Importantly, nothing sticks out. Even more importantly - and although it is such a delight to drink now - it  will undoubtedly evolve further. A superb wine!
