There is a little funk at first. Then comes tapenade, fig, bacon, blackberry, Provence herbs. The palate is very nice and smooth although quite acid driven, but with a soft mouthfeel and a nice blackberry note. There is a good width and a bit of weight, a spherical mid palate with a good tannic kick leaving a layer of dust on the finish which is mainly fruity with a bacon note. It's very surprising to find that bacon note that I usually associate with Northern Rhone syrah. This is a very good surprise.
