Dry and earthy on the palate with blackberries, black currants, earth, wood, licorice, spices, forest floor, green pepper, vegetables, vinaigrette, herbs, pencil lead, black pepper and leather.
Medium finish with round tannins.
This is a young Syrah blend from Languedoc. Very earthy with lots of green notes. Still unbalanced but has nice complexity. A good food wine.
Needs 2 hours to open up properly and show some tannins. Needs another 3 years in the bottle to mature.
I paired it with soft and hard cheeses.
I’ll need to leave some aside for a day and see how it develops…
