This ruby colored, dry wine delivers a juicy, full and rich mouthfeel with lots of satisfying complexity. It has plenty of ripe red fruits and black plums on nose and palate. Long finish with mineral notes. Medium, smooth tannins. The wine warms in winter and cool evenings year-round. It is very suited to red meat with provencal herbs (thyme, rosemary, sage).
