Hoo-boy ripe off the bat. But soon calms down into a lovely melange of blackberry coulis, lavender, raspberry, graphite, lead, granite, mineral. Powerful and distinct aromas. The palate is deep and enormously sweet with lovely depth, purity and super focused. Amazing freshness. Really just a baby. But this is the best bottle I’ve had of this. Smokey, bacon and flowers and fruit is a great combo. For such a big boy it sure is fresh and delicates. 33/33/33 GSM essentially.

This wine is so effing amazing. Give me 5 minutes.

Ok. It’s 33/33/33 GSM and my god this thing is art genius bomb wine. Incredible nose that is super focused and so pretty. Loads of red and black fruits and huge blue fruits. Gorgeous herbs and so dark. Juicy. Brooding. Stunning in how wild it is and also at the same time how clean it is. Raspberry and mint. Just stunning beyond belief. Palate is just ridiculous. It is so juicy and so clean with incredible structure and freshness. My god what purity there is here and insane body but yet retains such lightness. Amazing tannins and grip. Just fucking genius wine. Finishes with lingering spice and juiciness. So long. Epic:

A bit reduced and unresolved then holy moly! Damn! Goddam! Tannins still present, more than adequate acid, meaty, beaty, big (but not too big), and bouncy! Exuberant re-buy!

Very nice. Olive, mint, sous bois on the nose gives way to black cherry. A little Mourvèdre funk. Tart acidity and some dry tannins but everything is in balance. Better-crafted than other Cairannes that I've had. Not much meat, but you might start confusing this with a N. Rhone, as it feels cool.
