"Vivid ruby-red. Expansive aromas of red fruit preserves, lavender and cola, and a hint of garrigue in the background. Silky, smooth and sweet on the palate, offering sappy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Fine-grained tannins give shape to the penetrating finish, which leaves behind a suave floral pastille note. These vines are reportedly between 80 and 100 years of age now."
