Closure: Cork

A charming and beautifully balanced Rhone.

Very deep dark red black tinged colour with a bright dark red hue. Vibrant raspberry and dark cherry aromas emanate from the glass with hints of red liquorice, fresh herbs, a light meatiness and spice also present. Medium bodied and intensely flavoured yet light on its feet, delicious spicy dark raspberry, ripe cherry and liquorice flavours create a juicy feel. Earthy incense infusions, dried herbs and meaty pepper elements then kick in on the long fresh finish. Finely woven tannins are perfectly integrated with the fruit. Excellent drive with a long savoury aftertaste that will draw you in for more.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 15%

Other Reviews….
Lots of black cherries, peppery herbs, garrigue, and violet notes emerge from the 2017 Cairanne Le Ventabren. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, fresh and elegant on the palate, it's another beautiful wine from this estate that’s well worth your time and money. The blend is 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 10% Carignan that was brought up all in tank.
