Blueberries and forest raspberries with underlying animal notes.
The tannins are rounded off nicely, you know they are there but just! Some thyme and lavender in aftertaste.
Matched the quite spicy-ginger, cinnamon chili coated pork meat and sweet spicy plumsauce really well! So good. We pitted this against a Fleurie (which was delicious), and this wine stood out.
Balanced, nice structure, fruity, juicy, and savory. Apparently it had great aging potential as well but we couldn't wait.
