This is a quantum Carignane; an infinitely dense black dot of a wine. It is nearly opaque purple-red, with deep black cherry, orange peel, black plum fruit with a warm spiciness and white pepper, plus a hint of something wild, like leather and game. It has power and concentration to spare, yet is smooth and almost plush in texture. The finish is long and lively. Theres nothing shy about this redhead!
