Tasting Notes: Red robe is quite dark, legs visible. The raspberry fruit aroma is very clear, ripely fruited with some husky, baked notes, black raisin, brandy cake, cherry stone. It is imposing. The palate gives strength, muscle, tight packing with tannins that are baked. There is a note of cocoa towards the finish.
Food Pairing Suggestion: Lamp with herbs, ribs
Grape Varieties: Grenache noir, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Cinsault, Clairette and sundry others
