This is a lush, seductive Carignan, offering initial notes of pepper, licorice and baking spice that harmonize into the dense black-fruit core. The palate is round and mouthfilling, with ample acidity and medium tannins that lend a pleasant structure. Rich blackberry and black-cherry flavors are infused with wood and sweet spice tones, finishing long.
