Tasting Note:

The lowest of Sara's three vineyards, planted at extremely high density by her father and with naturally very low yields, is Clos Martinet; a blend of 65% Garnacha, 18% Carignan, 11% Syrah and small quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2009 this received no more than two months in barrique before being transferred to large concrete tanks in an effort to retain freshness. Did it work? Wow! Wonderfully fine and floral, with the silkiest of tannins woven through the wild strawberry, damson and blueberry fruit. Detailed, lacy and elegant, with more air this reveals complex notes of garrigue, cigar smoke, coal and salty slate. Mineral and pure with a haunting, high-toned long floral finish. Superb.
