Savage Follow The Line | 2015
The 2015 is again electric, bright ruby red and vibrant in the glass. The nose plush, lush, and very expressive combining an attractive red berry confit ripeness with true old world Languedoc sappy, spicy, stalky, savouriness. There are alluring lifted fruit notes of raspberries, red cherries and exotic quince and yellow peach stones. On the palate, there is such attention to detail with the Cinsaut, Grenache and Syrah blended seamlessly. Like the 2014, the cool 13 Abv and fresh, electric acids are a prominent hallmark shaping this wine. Supremely balanced fruits dance on the tongue... wild forest strawberries, red bramble berries, and red pithy cherries. This wine promises excitement, optimism and energy and does not fail to deliver. This is no frivolous wine mind you, with its serious structure, chalky tannins and sappy spice lingering long on the finish. It's a wine for the new, modern generation of connoisseurs.
