Lovely. A great example of well-done carbonic, great lift and punch but nothing overtaking the rest of the wine. Fresh, textural, invigorating with its dark fruit and earthy/herbal character. Crisp black and red fruits, garrigue, roasted herbs, baked earth. Just sings sun-drenched Mediterranean France. Also of note, this really seems to have the extraction dialed in, LBT a few years ago was a tad thin, this is spot on. 40 CAR 30 GR 30 CIN — 10 days ago
Drank 4/14/17. Decent pairing with chicken sausage and lentils.
Big nose of raspberry bramble, cherry, underbrush, and Blackberry liquer. Red fruits on the palate, with herbs, spice, and cherry. Medium to firm tannins on the finish, dominated by red fruit. A touch hot. I beleive WA went like 96 pts on that. Can't quite get there, but a nice wine for the price (roughly $27).
