Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media:

"Bright violet. Lively scents of fresh cherry, black raspberry, licorice and cracked pepper are complemented by a smoky olive paste nuance. Nervy and energetic on the palate, offering smoky red and blue fruit and lavender pastille flavors complicated by hints of olive and black pepper. Finishes smoky and long, showing a hint of medicinal bitterness and smooth, harmonious tannins. "

Product Description:

"A wonderfully rich, spicy full bodied red wine with delightful aromas of nutmeg, cinnamon and wild herbs from grapes grown at one of the highest elevations in the Southern Rhône – 400 meters. Grapes are harvested at their optimum maturity in order to optimize the concentration and a soft tannin structure. The fruit is immediately destemmed and gently crushed. Controlled temperature fermentation for 3 weeks with only native yeasts to ensure a soft tannin, color and flavor extraction from the skins." -Winery
