Nose

Black cherry and blue fruits intermingle with all spice and savory garrigue.

Palate

The palate is generous and fleshy, well balanced by crisp acidity. The wine finishes long, with fine grain tannin and concentrated red fruits. Tightly structured, this wine will evolve in bottle the next 2-4 years and will drink well for 10+.
