A rich, exotic nose of ripe cherry, soy, forest floor, star anise, and chocolate. On the palate, flavors of cocoa powder, black plum, and smoky spice, with a creamy texture.


This wine bridges the gap in mouthfeel between a ligher-bodied red like Counoise or Terret Noir and richer red grapes like Syrah or Mourvedre. The finish shows sweet earth and dark red fruit, kept in balance by a little tannic bite.
