Clear, bright cherry red. As soon as you stick your nose in the glass, you are transported to a warm summer's eve in the south of France - there's a veritable pot-pourri of strawberry, raspberry, red cherry and floral aromas, accompanied by a hint of leather and a gentle waft of woodsmoke. It really is delightfully understated and elegant, so much so that there's an almost Burgundian feel to it, both aromatically and structurally. Piquant, sweet-sour red fruit flavours combine with gently rustic tannins and juicy, cherry skin acidity, leading to long, peppery-spicy finish. It's a lovely drop already, but will no doubt be even better after another year or two in bottle.
