Flaxman Wines 'The Drone' GMS 2011

Smooth, juicy and fruity blend (60/21/19) aided and abetted by some depth from the Mataro.  You're introduced by way of a spice flecked red and black fruited mix, raspberry and blackcurrant pastille.  There's a little licorice and earth in the equation, but the pleasure for me here was the lightness and ever-so-moreish qualities in possession.

Over two days the fruit takes a little back-seat, and some lightly dusted cinnamon over citrus peel leads you in.  No particular length to shout about, but i reckon you'll be back in for another sip of this one to not worry about that.  Easy going, all in check, more than a nod to the Rhone as much as Eden Valley.  89 - Good
