Almost opaque dark purple in the glass, with ripe cherry and black plum dominating the nose, plus a hint of violets. On the palate it is big and full bodied, juicy tart fruits complemented by Mediterranean herbs and oaky nuances. The acidity gives a perfect balance to the richness. A southern France hidden gem!
