A subtle whiff from the Roussanne (10%) wafts on. Some lovely perfume adds a different dimension. Dark cherries and plum compote are there too courtesy of the Shiraz. Perhaps some damp earth there also. It's not a bad yin and yang thing going on.
Riding soft and long, tannins are pitched nicely. The fruit is delicate and juicy. A citrus peel edge adds appeal to the chocolate and dark berry fruit. A lick of vanilla and some baking spice reveals another layer of interest.
I'd happily have a couple of glasses on a Saturday night with a rib eye steak.
Only 800 bottles produced and one for the medium term if you consider cellaring.
