Drink Excellent now, but will age to 2026 and beyond. 
Despite the fact that Syrah is the dominant variety, the small amounts of Mourvedre and Grenache really show through, with smoky, meaty, leathery, almost farmyardy notes mingled with the bramble and cassis fruit, orange peel, fried spices, garrigue herbs and tobacco. And what lovely balance on the palate - rich red and black fruit flavours combine with mouth-watering acidity and velvety tannins in a wine that is already gorgeously smooth and very drinkable. That said, this wine undoubtedly possesses hidden depths, with a complexity and tight structure which suggests a great future.
