Winemaker's Notes:

"Inky ruby. Ripe blackcurrant and blackberry aromas lifted by a hint of cracked pepper. Full and rich but with firm tannins giving a serious edge to the sweet dark fruit and licorice flavors. Finishes solid, chewy and quite long."
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

My Notes:

About Perrin et Fils:

Jean-Pierre, François and Pierre Perrin are proud to present their fine wines, inspired by the memory of their grandfather, Pierre Perrin. Using the same techniques employed at Château de Beaucastel, the Perrins have added some interesting appellations to their already impressive list of wines.

"Jean-Pierre and François Perrin - chosen among the Most Influential Wine Personalities of the last 20 Years. The Perrins believe in natural winemaking, unfiltered wines, and routinely produce long-lived classics that are among the finest in the world." -Robert M. Parker, Jr's The Wine Advocate
