This wine shows beautifully with its dark ruby color, rich high toned fruit, balanced acidity and great proportion. Notes of black fruits, vanilla, coconut and turned soil come forth. Complex flavors of Herbs de Provence, toasted oak, and earth are enticing; the lively tannins are fine grained and mature. This wine is generous and balanced enough to enjoy now, yet with the complexity and structure to age well for six
years or more.
