This is a Rhône blend based on Syrah and Grenache. It’s super-fruity, with a blast of blackberries, cherries, currants and milk chocolate that taste like they were baked into a tart, and the texture is soft and velvety. Drink now.
At 16.4% alcohol this might as well be a Port, its aroma overwhelmingly sweet, overripe and dominated by caramel syrup. The tannins are mouthpuckeringly dry, too. Tasted two bottles, both of which had crumbling corks.
