Deep, intense hue. Aromas of fresh black fruit a little meaty, with dried herbs smells. On the palate, the richness of the tannins harmonizes with the smoothness of the wine. The finish is long, with spices aromas, licorice. A typical wine from this specific terroir called 'les Garrigues.'
"Whiffs of crème de cassis are accented by smoke and char in this full-bodied, juicy red. The palate is quite pristine, loaded with pert blackberry and black cherry flavors juxtaposed by a tangy acidic edge. The finish is long and marked by fine-grained, persistent tannins. Ready now but should hold through 2028." 90 points (2018 vintage), Wine Enthusiast
"Black-plum and mulberry flavors are juicy and plush but not dense or heavy in this elegantly balanced wine. It's rich, ripe and full in body, accented by a crush of granite and notes of rosemary and sage. The finish extends on fine-grained, persistent tannins." 91 points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, January 2019.
