Clear, bright, translucent cherry/blood red colour. There's really not a lot to choose between this and the 2012. Again, the nose is complex, expressive and herby/spicy, with raspberry and red cherry fruit aromas and a hint of cassis, notes of garrigue herbs, mint, soft curry spices, sous bois and polished wood. And once again, the palate is medium-to-full-bodied, offering bright, fresh, spicy, herb-infused red fruit flavours, little bready/brioche notes, a hint of licorice, the deftest lick of oak, ripe, tea-like tannins and excellent acidity. And as with the 2012, it certainly possesses the structure to age and evolve for 5 to 10 more years. Another beautifully crafted and classy wine.
