Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a nicely balanced wine with with lots of earthiness, smoke, and and black cherry aromas. The taste continues with black and tart cherries and there's a long silky finish with some very soft tannins. Very nice for an herbed port roast.
Julia Kelada rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This wine is dark red tinged with red brick colour.

On the nose there is a predominance of black berry jam. There are mild animal notes. There was a beautiful herb garden tone.

On the palate this is quite a meaty wine. the fruits that present are plums and figs and tiny black berries.Great herbs of Rosemary and lavender. A leather and bitter dark chocolate tone step forward and are followed by a black pepper spice. Fantastic tannins and a full dry mouthed finish.
Great with beef tar tar, Bison or other pungently flavoured meats.
Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Nice aromas of black pepper and blackberries.
Elegant, balanced and long enough. A little trip to the south of France for less than 20$.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Blackberry jam, lavender, savoury herbs on the nose
Medium-full bodied with with soft tannins, more blackberry, plums, leather and herby spice on huge palate with a slightly peppery finish.
