Picked up somewhat randomly, so a good opportunity to test both the 2006 vintage and Dujac’s well-respected wines. Limpid ruby-garnet colour with a medium, watery rim. Medium intensity, very perfumed red cherry and redcurrant fruit, with spicy, earthy notes overlayed – allspice, perhaps? Possibly some cracked pink pepper, cinnamon, and faint coal smoke or a ‘dry’, green note. Faint grilled meat too. Quite complex. Light-medium body, medium alcohol, and medium+ acidity. Sweet, bright, cherry attack, with decent flavour concentration. Transforms into crisp citrus notes, through to a medium, grainy tannic finish. Some flavour fade. Not amazing, but pretty good – aromatic and appetisingly savoury.
