From a brutally hot vintage, this shows plenty of mineral, schist and cola aromas along with impeccably smooth fruit. It's a little racy and sheer in the mouth, but food will balance that without a problem. And along the way you should enjoy the licorice, cherry, kirsch and other crafty nuances that this fine blend of Cabernet, Garnacha and Carignan has to offer. Drink now through 2009.
