Young. Light and elegant. Cherry taffy. A touch of wild musk. Raspberry. Exotic. Well made. Needs time to come into its own. Opens up over time to become floral.

From head-trained vines planted in 1886, possibly the oldest Cinsault on Earth, and yet still farmed by the same family. It’s hard not to compare to Cru Beaujolais, with its tart, bright red fruit, lively acidity, and aromatic firework display of floral minerality. Even harder is setting down your glass.
