"Pale red. Red berry and cherry aromas are strongly accented by smoky herbs, anise and lavender. Round and juicy, offering intense bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a late note of peppery spices. In a rich, classic Tavel style but quite lively, finishing with impressive power and lingering spiciness."

A big rose, it stays beautifully fresh and lively. Enjoy it over the coming year or two. Drink now-2013"
