(2009 Vintage) Ruby core with a rosy pink rim. The subtle but high-toned nose leads with raspberry, anise, and dried herb aromas along with a touch of orange rind and black cherry. Very soft and round, with flavors of wild strawberry, rose petal, and raspberry supported by cocoa flavored, powdery tannins with a strong underlying mineral streak.
(2009 Vintage) Deep ruby/purple color and a sweet nose of ripe Grenache along with raspberries, cherries, licquorice, and pepper. On the palate it is both powerful and elegant, with zesty acidity and morderately high tannin.
