Brilliant ruby. Lively red berry and Asian spice aromas are deepened by notes of mocha and licorice. Taut and linear on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering fresh raspberry and cherry compote flavors and a touch of succulent herbs. Shows very good energy and focus, finishing with lingering spiciness and a note of tangy berry skin.
Hearty dishes from Spain or Southern France would groove with this wine. Delightful with slow-cooked lamb with rosemary and thyme, gamey meat and manchego cheese.
