International Wine Cellar(2003 Vintage) Deep red. Intense, Cote-Rotie-like aromas of cassis, smoke, game, pepper and violet. Intense blackberry flavor with pungent accents of bitter chocolate, espresso and candied licorice. Finishes broad and long, with notes of garrigue and cherry skin. Wild stuff-not for fans of subtle, understated wines.
