James Suckling Cairanne Les Hautes Rives 2019

Very dense nose of licorice, tar and elderberry, but although this is a powerful and well-structured Southern Rhone red, it has wonderful freshness and dryness on the full-bodied palate. The firm structure becomes even more obvious at the long, focused and harmoniously dry finish. A classic GSM (grenache, syrah and mourvedre) Rhone blend. Drink or hold.
