Intense violet color; plums, black cherries, licorice and dried herbs aromas in the nose. Sweet, round and ample in the mouth, with a lingering finish.
The Wine Advocate - "This has a pinched bouquet that takes some coaxing, but there are some lithe cassis and black plum fruits with a touch of garrigues developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a supple, fleshy entry, good acidity, lush raspberry, wild strawberry and a touch of vanilla, very well defined on the finish with good length. EXCELLENT. Drink now-2014.
Wine Spectator - "Ripe and flashy, but pulls it off, with gorgeous mouthfeel and loads of lush raspberry ganache, boysenberry and plum sauce notes, all kept going by a graphite streak on the lengthy finish.
