Color: Medium ruby, clean, clear to the rim
Nose: Black fruits, new tobacco, spicebox, and a slight vanilla note
Palate: Black fruits, bright acidity, more tobacco, medium + tannins with a velvety grip. Finish is medium long…25 seconds.
Overall perception: Tasty. Seems to be modern in style but with the ability to age short term. My first experience with the Oriel project. Louis Barruol from Saint Cosme was the winemaker on this one. Seems to sit on the fence between new and old world rather well.
100% Syrah btw
