Nearly opaque, dark ruby-violet color. Complex aromas of spicy, sappy, black cherry and black pepper, anise, crushed raspberries, dark cocoa and dried herbs. Firm and medium full-bodied flavors echo the aromas, with more apparent peppery character in the rich, firmly structured finish. A bolder, somewhat more muscular version of Beauzeaux than previous vintages. Enjoy this with Western barbecue and the classic red wine dishes of Southern France.
