"(100% destemmed): Good medium red.. Ripe strawberry and spices on the nose, along with sexy hints of stone fruits. A silky, pliant wine with lovely texture and depth, not to mention more material and backbone than the Petit Arlot. Flavors of red berries, spices and underbrush are a bit less high-pitched than those of the Petit Arlot but this wine still comes across as fruity and nicely delineated. Finishes with nicely ripe tannins."
