Color: Deep dark red with purple hints.

Nose: Intense black fruit aromas, blackcurrant and black pepper combined with delicate notes of sage, tobacco and Provence herbs. spices come back at the finish to add complexity.

Mouth: soft tannins with a firm body. Well balanced structure, good acidity and long aftertaste.

Service and Food Pairing: ready to drink now or cellar for several years. Decant and serve at 16-18°. Ideal companion meats and elaborate dishes.
