Appearance: Deep, dark violet.
Nose: Floral and surprisingly bright for such a deep wine. Notes of lavender and violets make way to a bit of roasted meat character.
On the palate: Dense and rich yet relatively lithe as notes of kirsch, blueberry liquor, chocolate, spice and incense reveal themselves. It benefits from a nice tarry, meaty quality to it. Despite Mourvedre’s reputation as often being quite tannic there is little to no perceptible tannin on the smooth finish, lingering finish.
