L’Oustal Blanc K6 Carignan

100% Carignan that I bought a few years ago, and I thought I might assess it’s evolution. Garnet color. On the nose, youthful, lots of mineral, slate, blackberry, licorice, flowers, spices, with not all that much oak, and definite earth. On the palate, dry, medium intensity, medium body, pretty dark fruit fruit and spices, framed by mineral and stone, with good balance, and a good complexity, and good length to the finish.
