Dark red in color with a purple body. Black ripe fruits like morello cherries and raspberries, juniper berries, black pepper and garrigue on the nose. After several years of aging, the aromas will be characterized by plums, dried stone fruits, leather, fur, and sandalwood. The palate is round, rich and powerful with soft tannins. With time, it will evolve into a more complex, spicy wine.
Enjoy on its own or pair with red grilled meat, lamb shoulder with thyme and dishes of tapas and curry.
