Bright youthful purples and dark red.
Exciting and full of exotic chocolate, minty, black cherry characters, with some white pepper overlaid with subtle oak character.
Very sweet fruit with fine grained tannins persistent, which is a hallmark of this vineyard; excellent fleshy middle palate and a long supple and satisfying finish.
"Starts off with some Rhône-like aromas of smoke, cracked pepper, blueberries and a touch of meatiness, then delivers vibrant fruit and spice on the palate. With its medium body and tart finish, this could almost pass for Crozes-Hermitage. Like most C-H, enjoy it on the young side for its fresh, juicy fruit. "
