Description

(raised in a combination of concrete vats and new and used barriques for 16 months): Deep ruby. Powerful dark berry, cherry compote and licorice aromas are complemented by notes of garrigue and smoky minerals. Plush and expansive on the palate, offering juicy boysenberry and cherry compote flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. Blends richness and vivacity with a deft hand, finishing smooth, sweet and very long, with supple tannins lending grip.
-Josh Raynolds, Vinous
