"Bright ruby. Reticent but pure aromas of blueberry, dark chocolate and spices. Creamy, seamless and round, with a restrained sweetness and good freshness to its dark raspberry and blackberry flavors. Has just enough acidity to maintain its shape. Finishes with ripe tannins and very good length. Use this excellent value as a stand-in for a polished Cotes du Rhone."
