VinoUS Media Review
Bright violet. Deeply perfumed aromas of ripe red and dark berries and garrigue slowly pick up spice and woodsmoke elements as the wine stretches out. Juicy and seamless in the mouth, offering alluringly sweet black raspberry, cherry preserve, spicecake and lavender flavors that slowly tighten up on the back half. The floral and spice notes carry strongly through an impressively long, penetrating finish that's given shape and gentle grip by smooth, polished tannins. (Josh Raynolds)
Wine Tasting Notes
A deep, dark and dense red color. The nose is full of spice and red berries even notes of jam. On the palate, the wine is complex and powerful, with round tannins and notes of ripe plum, peppery herbs and cherry stone. Overall, an ample, rich wine that manages to maintain purity.
