(2013 Vintage) Medium ruby in color, the Hérétiques has a nose of sun-baked cherry and black cherry fruit, with hints of smoke, tar, and dusty stones. It is the nose of a warm climate, but is not overripe. Full-bodied, very softt, round, and mouth filling, there is some light tannin to keep things together. Good flavors of round & ripe cherry fruit with accents of smoke, earth and garrigue make a good impression for such a low-priced wine. There is a touch of bitterness and grit at the conclusion of the balanced and modest finish.
