A divisive wine, but for those who like the smell of barnyards, this is the shizzit. Good fruit balance with heavy hay and manure on the nose

Plush and concentrated, with a core of blackberry, currant and fig fruit stretched over licorice and tar notes. Sweet smoke and black tea chime in on the solid, grippy finish. Made by Louis Barruol of St.-Cosme. Grenache and Mourv?dre. Best from 2009 through 2023.
