Taltarni, Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Pyrenees, 2019
A bright and shiny purple colour. Cute and lively red fruit and plummy aromatics with fresh gloss, lipstick, white pepper spice offset by earthy, animal tones and stalky bitter herbs from the Mourvèdre. Oak gives a more celery seed/light cedar caress. Shiny and glossy, medium bodied easy going goodness. Some liberal dashes of dark cool-climate spice with plush berry juiciness and just enough fine tannic grip to interrupt the swallow. Finishing balanced with a medium amount of length.
Rating: 17/20 (88/100)
