($53) Dark red. Expressive aromas of red berries and cherry, with notes of smoky garrigue and dried flowers adding complexity. Spicy and pure, with an exotic floral note joining the mineral-driven raspberry and cherry flavors. Finishes smooth and sweet, with little in the way of obvious tannins. This is delicious now.

Absolutely delicious. Subtle nose builds with air. A prominent olive tapenade note coming forth. Really beautiful fruit and a long finish. Not sure about others commenting about oak. I didn't notice much as the wine was all about fruit. I would wait 5+ years if possible. Tannins a bit tough at the end, but went great with grilled NY steak. Really great stuff that hasn't even yet hit full stride.

Opaque purplish ruby colored almost to the rim. Nose shows sweet raspberry , and black cherry aromas with a hint of mint and briar in the background. Framboise , black cherry and tobacco flavors up front in a medium weight. Mid palate shows black pepper and anisette flavors with tar and black fruit nuance in the finish.
