Tasting NotesIn 2008 small yields led to very concentrated fruit and delicious, plump flavors. This succulent claret opens with blackberry and plum notes complemented by delicate hints of spice, licorice vanilla and Herbs de Provence. The finish stays focused with balanced acidity and soft tannins.
