This is a dense and heady wine, with powerful aromas of forest berry, garrigue and purple flower that mingle seamlessly with the blackberry and raspberry fruit core. A hint of smoky game adds depth to the palate, which evolves in layers from notes of lush fruit flesh to tannic skins, then offering notes of savory herbs and, finally, a raw cocoa powder flavor. The texture is like crushed velvet.
