Composition: 100% Carignane.
Notes: Chewy, jammy raspberry nose with bramble and some dry leaves. Still a generous amount of sweet-seeming fruit in the glass, despite its couple of years in the cellar. Some warm spice at the end. A clove and anise finish, but not anything by way of tannins. Not much of the hard/bitter back of the throat thing I usually get from Carignanes, which was a nice surprise. Pretty simple overall: nothing complex, but pleasant enough. For me personally, I found it a little too extracted and jammy and the sweetness was a little much for my liking. That, however, didn't keep me from drinking it over the course of two nights. It held up well and was pretty much the same the second night.
