Brilliant ruby. Pungent dark berry, licorice and garrigue aromas are energized by a hint of white pepper. Chewy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry, cassis and blood orange flavors that show very good structure and depth. Closes long and spicy, displaying lingering dark fruit character, building tannins and a touch of succulent herbs.
