This is a deep plum colored wine with a heady cassis, black pepper and anise aroma. The tannins are velvety, integrated and balanced with the fruit. The wine was matured in French oak 225 litre barriques. It has a rich texture, ample body, some berry flavors, and a hint of pepper and spice. The seamless integration of the fruit and oak and its length on the palate make this a compelling red wine. It's a great wine to accompany any full flavored fare. You could cellar it for years if you like, but this is one ‘rascal' that can't wait to be liberated from the bottle. Go for it!
