Excellent value from the Rhone Valley - home of the big spicy reds. This wine has all the southern character but is packed with fruit making it most approachable. Excellent value.
Ageing Potential: 2-4 Years
Deep ruby red wine with shallow garnet rim. Pronounced bouquet of stewed jammy fruits with leather and mineral tones. Warm and rich on the palate with firm tannin structure but not aggressive. Lots of fruit with stewed blackberries, plums and a hint of pepper. A big wine with a soft approachable style and a warm mellow finish. Perfect food companion.
