How is a 12 so balanced and pure?! Black pepper, lamb on BBQ, some savory green herbs. So pure in mid palate. Fresh dark cherry with nimble & clean finish that has wisp of smoke at very end. Very nice...

2013: good typicity; black pepper, cloves and violets. More of a black fruited style, blackberry, currant. Medium to light bodied, fresh Livy acid, hardly any tannin. A supple easy drinker, with decent Syrah aromatics. Smoky, black peppery length, with some twist of exotic spice (cardamon)

Restrained fruit with some notes of honey. Great pairing for the veal we're having for dinner tonight. #winelover

Nice acidity and well-balanced. Complex with terroir.
