This is absolutely everything I love about Barral, and it takes me back to some of my first experiences with Faugères. A blend of Mourvèdre and Syrah from younger vines planted in schist soils with a northern exposure, it opens with a bright and vivid nose, with brambly blackberries, sour cherry, and smoke, accentuated by citrus balm and dried herbs reminiscent of rosemary and thyme. The palate is fresh and energetic with ripe red raspberry, tart red cherries, pine needles, and a hint of dried hibiscus lasting onto a lengthy finish that continues the brambly fruit, spice, and herbal motif. Truly a fascinating wine! Tim Gagnon
