Big, almost chewy. Vanilla, dark berry, and a bit sweet. Not particularly tannic or alcoholic (though there's plenty of alcohol). Pair with spicy/grilled meat or rich desserts.

Despite the rugged, hot terroir from where this beauty comes, the wine is pure silk and elegant, with lots of black raspberry, chocolate covered currants, pepper and olive notes giving way to a full-bodied 2014; it has polished tannin and a seamless texture. drink it anytime over the coming 4-5 years.(JD) (4/2016) 91pts by Cellar Tracker By Richard Jennings 4/28/2017 Dark ruby color; aromatic, roasted fruit, kirsch, tart berry, graphite, tar, dark chocolate nose; tasty, dense, kirsch, anise, dark chocolate, ripe plum palate with good balancing acidity; medium-plus finish .

If I were a pope in exile I would also too go to the south of France for this — much better than what one finds around Rome.

Smokey with some flint and a whole lot of fruit. A mouthful, but finish dissipates quickly. Relatively light tannins. I think this might b a good party wine. Would have pretty wide appeal.

Nice refined wine. A little dust. Fruit forward but not jammy.

Truly tastes like a dry dessert wine (see label): Rich, red berry, vanilla, easy tannins, smooth. Could have paired poorly, but did well as an after dinner bottle. Likely would be best with strong, red game, and caramelized fennel/shallot flavors.
