Tasting notes

17/10/2005

A fascinating blend of Cabernet Sauvignon with Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and a touch of Viognier from the coolish 2003 vintage. Densely ripe fruit with an earthy edge, the Cabernet's structure is fleshed out by the Rhone grapes' fruit, very smooth, long finish. Drink 2005-12.
