Review:
Youthful purple color. Deeply pitched aromas of ripe red/blue fruits are complicated by floral, cracked pepper and smoky bacon accents. Offers sweet, seamless and mineral-tinged black raspberry, cherry liqueur and exotic spice flavors that smoothly combine brawn and finesse. Shows impressive vivacity and finishes on a gently tannic note, with sharp clarity and strong persistence. (10% whole clusters and raised in used foudre and demi-muids)
