WineDiva's Review

Generous, complex, woven.
Here's a cuvee made from old vine Syrah (for finesse), Mourvedre (for a touch of spice, and power), Carignan (for freshness) and Grenache for its fruit character.
The Cairanne appellation, tucked almost smack on the middle of the Southern Rhone, rests just below Rasteau and north of Vacqueyras and Gigondas, received its Cru status in 2016 after being classified Cotes du Rhone Villages since the 1960s. The 2016 vintage was a great follow up to the exceptional 2015 vintage--for some, it was even better.
This complex wine is detailed by smoked meat, muddled wild berry compote, savoury spices and leather. The attack is lined with sweet generous fruit and woven flavours mimic the nose. Supple, fresh and lengthy, it's drinking well now.
