Tight aromas of cherry and cassis come with orange peel and licorice scents. It feels edgy and acidic on the palate, but there's enough body and fruit to absorb the acids. Tastes like schisty licorice, black fruits and spice, with a choppy, tannic, medium-long finish. Drink this Syrah-Carignan blend now.
