(12.7% alcohol; vinified with 40% whole clusters): Medium red. Musky scents of raspberry, smoke and black olive reminded me of Syrah. Suave and seamless in the mouth, conveying a ripe chocolatey quality as well as good herbal lift. More spicy and serious than the basic village offering but also more imploded today. Finishes with dusty tannins and an element of youthful austerity.
