SKU: 3103000060061086Categories: ,


Possessing a youthful red plum translucent color, it has all the perfume lift and exuberance you would expect from old vine Cinsault. The nose is aromatically charged, brimming with fresh violets, cherry blossom, rose water, lychee skins, sun dried cranberries, potpourri and an exotic touch of Turkish delight. Wonderful purity and clarity are always hallmarks of this wine as are the radiant fresh acids and bright, crunchy, sappy red berry fruits. Once again, this wine is the epitome of elegance, walking quite lightly, shimmering all the way to the finish with illuminated brilliance. This really is an exceptional, mouth-watering delight. Blend: 93% Cinsaut, 7% Syrah The 2017 Follow The Own is a blend of 93% Cinsault and the rest Syrah from in Darling. It underwent malolactic fermentation in old 500-liter French oak, and then spent nine months in foudres ranging from 1,500 to 2,000 liters. It has a very seductive bouquet of plush red currant and cranberry fruit with touches of vanilla and almond. The palate is well balanced with fine, quite edgy tannin. This is linear and conservative in some ways, but it has a very penetrating finish that leaves a tingle of white pepper on the finish. Give this a year in bottle, then drink to your heart’s content. Drinking Window: 2020 – 2032. Bright, with a floral note pulling high-pitched cherry, blood orange and damson plum fruit flavors along. Light shiso leaf and mineral hints streak the finish.
