Opaque ruby. An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes candied blue fruits, pungent flowers, spicecake and baking spices. Sweet and precise on the palate, offering intense blueberry, cassis and violet pastille flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Smoothly blends power and finesse and finishes impressively long and spicy, with harmonious tannins adding framework and gentle grip.
The Syrah brings in smoke, violets and red fruits. The combination gives the wine a softer entry with underlying power and finesse. Inky ruby with vibrant cherry and black currant aromas are complemented by suggestions of black pepper, violet and olive. Taut and structured on entry, then more open in the mid-palate, it offers red berry and bitter cherry flavors sweetened by a floral pastille nuance and a hint of cola. Shows very good lift and focus on the gently tannic finish, which hangs on with very good, floral persistence. Easy to drink young, but can be kept for more than 10 years. Pairs well with red meats such as beef and game, ravioli with truffles, blue cheeses and strong cheeses. - Importer
