Bright garnet, vibrant dark and red fruit with notes of blackberry and raspberry. Hints of cinnamon and floral character. Savory, medium bodied, good structure with soft tannins. A wine with a pleasant approach.

Dunkles Violett, Im Bouquet viel dunkelbeerige Noten und feiner Kaffeeduft. Am Gaumen weich und saftig mit voller Frucht von reifen, süssen Beeren, Pflaumen, Kirschen und Gewürzen. Leicht holzige Nuancen. Dem Côtes-du-Rhône nachempfunden.
