About

91

Opaque ruby. Ripe, smoke- and spice-accented dark berries, cherry liqueur, licorice and a hint of gaminess on the deeply perfumed nose. Ripe, round and fleshy in the mouth, offering bitter cherry and violet pastille flavors that take a sweeter turn with air. Clings nicely on the focused, dark-fruit-dominated finish, which is shaped by dusty, steadily building tannins.

Product Description:

"Garnet color with purplish reflections. Nose of fragrant guarrigue herbs (rosemary, thyme). The palate is lively, and peppery, with black fruits and spicy aromas. The tannins give a remarkable density." - Winery
