Nice crimson color. On the nose raspberry, plum, cherry, spice, and earth. On the palate plum, blackberry, and strong tannins overwhelm. The finish brings spice, pepper and a gratifying sweet dark fruit and plum.

Would be great with an earthy, meaty dish.

French style with riper fruit. Bacon fat and slight Brett aromas mixed with lots of woody oak. Tasted lots of Rhone wines with the same profile but without the ripe fruit.

Up-front mix of berries, good depth, falls away a little on the back.
