Crimson red in color, looking suspiciously like ruby port; the nose bears deep fruity aromas, with blackberries and orange zest at the forefront. The body is medium, leaning toward full, and the palate is surprisingly dry and herbal, with the fruit notes tucked into the pleasant background. The finish is warm and long-lasting.

Cherry-red color. Assertive bouquet of freshly picked grapes, black cherries. black raspberries, apricots and pepper keeps the olfactory sense focused. In the mouth, it behaves like a fat, chewy red form the sundrenched south of France; tastes ambrosial and clean. Finishes short, mildly fruity and ripe.

Initial whiffs detect ripe yet tart aromas of red grapes, raspberries and black berries; time in the glass rounds off the bouquet, adding delicate hints of cinnamon and grape vines. Palate entry is clean, tart and properly fruity; midpalate is intensely grapy, juicy and savory. Finishes elegantly in a grape perserves-like manner.

Recommended. Beautiful deep ruby/blood red color; excellent purity. Initial whiffs detect pleasingly ripe yet tart aromas of red grapes, raspberries, and blackberries; time in the glass rounds off the bouquet, adding delicate hints of cinnamon and grape vines. Palate entry is clean, tart, and properly fruity; midpalate is intensely grapy, juicy, and savory, but not quite as multidimensional as the Blanc. Finishes well in a grape preserves-like manner that’s elegant and classy.
