Rich, powerful and plush!
Tasting Notes: An excellent vintage in the Southern Rhone. Deep, intense dark red colour. Aromas of ripe black cherry with hints of vanilla and fennel. The palate is full-bodied with a delicious creamy-texture displaying black cherry, bitter lack chocolate and vanilla notes and hints of cedar. The finish is rich, powerful and plush showing off mocha and brown sugar in a velvety finish.
