    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep ruby color with a purple rim. A wonderful, expressive nose where ripe black and red fruits (cherry & black currant) combine with spices. Full- bodied with gorgeous, silky tannins, a balanced palate and a particularly long finished where notes of dates add an extra layer of complexity.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A modern style, with a good juicy, fairly primal core of red and black cherry compote, laced with sweet spice, anise and cocoa notes. The finish lets toasty spice and anise notes play out.

    Vivid red. Sexy red berry preserves and cherry on the nose, along with pungent garrigue character and a touch of spice cake. Tangy, nicely focused cherry and floral pastille flavors show good energy and carry through a sweet, seamless, tenacious finish. This is already drinking well.

    International Wine Cellar

    A flashy Châ­t­eau­neuf, this needs lots of air for the oak to blow off; then all the herb and stone details come out, giving depth to the shiny purple fruit. It's fresh and young, spicy and lively, to enjoy now with a steak or to cellar for five to ten years.
