Vinification Total de-stemming, Vatting time : 3 weeks, Matured in vats and barrels

Tasting Notes Bright purple.  Spicy aromas of blackberry, black cardamom, violet and black pepper.  Round and fleshy but energetic as well, offering pliant dark berry and licorice flavors and a hint of cracked pepper.  Shows an intriguing northern Rhone character, with the warmth of a Provencal wine.  Nicely concentrated, taut and focused on the clinging finish, which is firmed by dusty, harmonious tannins. - JR
