Brambleberries, black peppers, orange rind and spice box. Medium body, lots of clear and linear fruit, a fine line of acidity and a pretty finish. A blend of 60% syrah, 14% carignan, 11% tannat, 7% mourvedre, 5% cinsault and 3% grenache. Drink now. Screw cap.

The 2016 The Pepper Pot has a light blackberry and cranberry bouquet that is nicely integrated with the oak (used and foudres). The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a lovely grainy texture and a subtle gamy note that comes through on the finish. Delicious and utterly drinkable!
