Dark berries: blackberry, dark cherry. Long finish. Perfect with the lamb chops with cumin, mint, parsley, paprika.

Definite meat and cowhide from the carignan, and fruit from the grenache. Not as fruity, with some blackberry. Medium to higher tannins. Older wine, so left open an hour, and it kept improving.

Lovely complex nose of toasted nut, cocoa, lavender, and plum. Taste of fennel, white peppercorn, and ripe fruits. Slightly dry, but overall balanced. Understated wine that will not knock your socks off, but good on its own.

Opens with a bouquet of blackberries and oak. Palette of cherry, leather, and a hint of jalapeño. Ends with a dry earthy finish.

Plum tannin and spice! I have a cold and it still tastes great. Would buy this again.
