A beautiful wine-dark, mulberry color, and a first nose of dark, cool loamy earth with suggestions of raspberries, Damson plums and cherry/chocolate. On the palate, it is sleek and racy with a lively acidity, very soft tannins and great persistence. This is a wine from an extremely cool and elegant vintage, and by all experience, should be a great prospect for very long ageing and development.

Dark red. Aromas of raspberry jam musky flowers and earth are joined by spice licorice and vanilla nuances as the wine opens up. Juicy focused and smoky on the palate offering sweet red berry cherry and succulent herb flavors that deepen steadily on the back half. Supple tannins frame and add grip to a very long spice-laced finish that echoes the earth and floral notes.

The 2012 Le Cigare Volant is a Mourvèdre dominated cuvée (the blend is determined at harvest and is made from the varieties that exceled in the vintage) checks in 39% Mourvèdre, 33% Grenache, 26% Syrah and the rest Cinsault. It offers lots of black cherry, cassis, violets and peppery herbs to go with a medium-bodied, moderately structured, elegant style on the palate. Drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years.
