WineO Mark Review

This wine has a deep, dark ruby red color on the glass with a slight purple hue. The wine has a complex and enticing aroma of red and black fruits such as cherries, cassis, plums, and blackberries. This is followed by notes of spice, licorice, tobacco, and earth.

On the palate, this wine is medium to full-bodied with silky, elegant tannins and good acidity. It’s well-balanced, has well-integrated flavors, and its finish is long and persistent. You can taste the blackberry, blueberry, cherry, raspberry, and plum with hints of licorice, white flowers, oak, and leather.

Another one of the most sought after wines, for good reason! This Southern Rhône estate has been an established winery gaining a strong reputation from wine critics and wine lovers.
