Winemaker Notes

A persistent backbone of tannin and acidity adds structure, balance and a lengthy finish on the palate. Striking a seemingly perfect balance between plushness and precision, the vibrantly crimson colored 2016 perfumes with cherry cola and fresh flowers while buttressed with brambly garrigue notes  and characteristic flinty minerality.  Straightforward and compact, the wine opens with bright raspberry and rhubarb and then reveals more nuanced hints of confectioners chocolate, schist, and dried herbs.  Ever-present, is a satisfying vein of acidity that perfectly supports the wine’s complexity.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of ripe blue fruits and berry compote are complemented by herbal and floral aromas of garrigue and dried lavender. Concentrated plum and dark fruit flavors give way to mountain spices and dried herbs. Spiced rhubarb washes over the palate as sweet tobacco threads through the plush, full-bodied texture. Dark chocolate melts on a sheath of beet, wildflowers, and briar. Zippy black currant appears on the finish, where a current of minerality flows.
