A classic Rhône nose of plum, licorice and black pepper with a hint of herbaceousness. The palate is rich and textured, with balancing acidity and supple tannins. On the palate, you’ll find black fruit, baking spices and a lick of sweet oak vanilla. The finish is intriguingly long. Ready to enjoy now, this will hang in for another decade at least, giving more tertiary elements. Pair with rack of lamb.
