What does it taste like? 
It has very deep ruby color, purple at the core. Enticing aromas feature violets, blackberries, black cherries, and spicy notes of "garrigue" (the low-growing scrub mix of lavender, sage, thyme and more). The palate displays black fruit along with blueberries, licorice, and spice. The concentrated fruit and fine tannins are in perfect balance, so you can drink this textured red young. It's great without food, and even better paired with leg of lamb, beef stew, barbecued ribs, and more.

Is it ready to drink? 
This is drinking so beautifully today it's hard to put down. Still it will get even more harmonious with short-term aging and has concentration and structure to assure it can age gracefully until 8-10 years after the vintage.
