Sometimes translations work in spite of themselves. From the winemaker’s website: “Stimulated by the decanting, it will free its eccentricity, its bouquet of black fruits combination, bilberry jam, syrup of morello cherry or plum aperitif”. Funny, I think that’s what we were going to say.
Mostly Grenache and Carignan, this is a lovely wine with dark fruit, tannins and a fresh acidity that are tamed as the wine opens up. We get nice herbs and white pepper notes with a touch of licorice. It’s a slightly more rustic style red wine that’s nicely balanced by the fruit notes.
Here we add information on wines as they come in. We will try to keep up with out-of-stocks and vintage changes but we make no promises. For the most up to date information call, email or stop by. Cheers!
