Tasting Notes

Bright dark red. Aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate, crushed rock, brown spices, blood orange and peony. Wonderfully savory, intense and wild, with its dark fruit and soil flavors given definition and grip by powerful minerality, terrific floral lift and sound acidity. Seriously tangy, structured wine with outstanding slowly mounting length and utterly noble tannins that saturate the teeth and tongue. Mounir Saouma showed me all four elements of this wine in late 2016 but blended them to make this single outstanding bottling.
