medium robe; red jam aroma with light game notes, pepper also. The palate also has a good, local game style touch with wild notes, ripe black fruits. It extends OK, is good now. Food better than solo drinking. Late on, there is a supple tone thanks to some violet. 13°. To 2015 June 2011

2007

even red that isn't very deep. Has a rather supple, evident red fruit aroma that is evolving towards more spirity and game notions. The palate gives tight red fruit, with a northern grain and reserve. The aftertaste is smoky. Now right there – sound Syrah expression in this. Foods such as barbecues, meat pastas ideal. 13.5°. To end 2011. Nov 2009

2006

red, some purple; upbeat bouquet – live, brambly red fruits, mint and leather. Dark red berry fruit leads the palate, comes with bite and a tannic thread, ending on licorice, tar. The shape is upright – a direct wine of mid-weight content, pretty sound clarity, too. To 2011. June 2008

2005 ()

fizzy notes in the red, matt robe; low-key red jam aroma, red fruit gums, licorice. Light, scented jam, red fruit paste flavour, with some tannin at the end. At an intermediate stage now. Is a bit stretched, loose, the fruit doesn't offer a comfortable texture. To 2010-11 June 2008
