dark robe. This has an open richness on the nose, gives tobacco and prune, and a welcome freshness. This is attractive, good and drinkable, has a supple, spiced mid to late palate, with a pine, garrigue finish. Agreeable, get on and go Cairanne that is good to drink now, on its youth and energy. Its blackberry fruit is spiced and very engaging, is a w.o.w. wine. There are light late tannins, that have a grain, powder aspect. 15°. Bottled June 2012. To 2019. Dec 2012
