The 2018 Saintayme is one of the under the radar gems in this range. It often needs quite a bit of time to emerge, as is the case with the 2018, which only shows its true potential with several hours of air. Time brings out attractive floral and spice accents to play off the dark red/purplish fruit. Saintayme is a wine of gravitas and power. A few more years should help the tannins soften
