A flashy, red fruit-driven nose, redolent with ripe berries and some interesting garrigue notes. The mid-weight palate is framed by mouthwatering acidity. The tannins are quite supple and mild. There is a touch of herbaceousness on the palate but it is integrated nicely with the riper fruit to add character. Flavours of red fruit, kirsch and blackberry with a long slightly spicy finish. Chill lightly and pair with pork tenderloin or cassoulet.
