Tasting Notes

This wine opens with seductive, perfumed aromas of red currants, strawberries, blueberries, herbs de Provence, leather, tobacco and licorice. Delicious flavors of red fruits, sweet herb, earth and spice dance beautifully on the palate. The tannins are smooth and supple, and the finish goes on and on, begging for another sip. Enjoy!
