An early indicator of the 2019 vintage, this deliciously seductive Cotes du Rhone is made from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and old vine Carignan. Inky black core with a deep bright dark red black hue. Pronounced black cherry and liquorice aromas have a distinct blackpepper overlay with notions of scorched earth, graphite and spice also evident. Carrying plenty of weight across the palate are rich black raspberry, black cherry and liquorice fruits which are underscored by scorched earth, infusions of herbs du Provence and pepper. The wines opulence juxtaposed with a vivid freshness and ripe chewy tannin structure. Excellent depth and intensity for its price point finishing with ample length and a burst of pepper and spice on the aftertaste. Terrific bang for your buck here.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
