A youthful, medium-deep garnet red colour. Whilst at the same time gently herby and even slightly floral, this is crammed full of vibrant, youthful blueberry, redcurrant and bramble aromas, along with secondary notes of spiced orange, blackcurrant leaf, cedar and tobacco. The medium-to-full-bodied palate shows real elegance, with a tangy mix of bramble, wild strawberry and cherry fruit flavours, a subtle herbiness, grippy but ripe tannins and juicy acidity. Nothing really sticks out, and one could easily drink a glass or two for its own sake, though it really is a food wine. At 9 years of age (all of Garinet's wines are released only when ready to drink) it is some way from reaching its peak of maturity, and will certainly age very gracefully for a good few years yet. A really delicious, elegant, old-style Cahors.
