"(all whole clusters; aged in old foudres and concrete tanks) Lurid ruby. A complex, smoke- and spice-accented bouquet evokes ripe red berries, candied licorice, Asian spices and incense. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering intense cherry liqueur, raspberry, floral pastille and succulent herb flavors that present a smooth combination of richness and energy. Shows excellent focus and solid thrust on a long, sweet finish framed by fine-grained, slow-building tannins.. -Josh Raynolds"
