After a few years when Altaïr's wines strayed toward being too herbal and rustic, this is cleaner and easier to like. It's still showing the winery's typical herbal-olive aromas and flavors, but it's smooth in the mouth, with deep flavors of blackberry, cassis, licorice and cocoa. A solid, earthy finish with flavors of toast, coffee and herbs qualifies as complex. Drink now–2016.
