"Deep red. Superripe, roasted cherry and plum aromas are complicated by garrigue, smoked meat and tapenade. Surprisingly energetic on the palate, with deep but focused dark fruit liqueur and bitter chocolate flavors. Stains the palate, finishing sweet, broad and long. Deeper and more powerful than the Tradition but I prefer that wine's relative finesse."
