Starts with warm, baked aromas that hint at violets, baked black fruits and aged cheese. The palate is more acidic than expected, with plenty of scour and kick to go with flavors of roasted berries, beets, black cherry and herbs. Good intensity but sort of sharp and angular, which is probably due to the Carignan in the blend.
