...incredibly classic, with black and blue fruits, tons of pepper and crushed rock-like minerality, full-bodied richness, and sweet tannin. It's a ripe, sexy wine that pushes the envelope yet holds it together.
Pungent red and dark berry scents pick up subtle floral and garrigue nuances with aeration. Appealingly sweet raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille flavors show good energy and a hint of succulent herbs on the back half. Delivers very good depth as well as energy, and finishes long and spicy, with gentle tannic grip and an echo of sappy red fruit.
Ripe but restrained cassis and black-cherry notes are tinged by mushroom, wet earth and fur in this concentrated and fruity but rustic red. It's full bodied and firmly structured by fine-grained, densely packed tannins.
Juicy black fruit aromas, furry tannin giving firmness to the palate... Simple and refreshing and straightforward.
