Doyenne 2012 AIX
71% Syrah │29% Cabernet Sauvignon
Demonstrating distinctive yet congruous notes of both Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, this vintage creates a wine of wall-to-wall seamless fruit. The generous Syrah nose of rich, juicy raspberries, black pepper and smoky, sanguine (i.e. red) meat combine nicely with the currants, cassis and Herbs de Provence of the Cabernet Sauvignon. There is immediacy to this wine that registers off the charts on the pleasure scale. Enjoy now and over the next five years.
