Vinous, 91 Points- Lurid violet color. Lively black raspberry, blueberry, olive and floral scents are accented by a spicy top note. Offers juicy black/blue fruit flavors that show fine detail and vivacity thanks to a core of smoky minerality. Finishes long and silky, with dark berry and floral qualities, subtle tannins and bright, mineral-driven persistence.
Soil- Granitic soils at 300m in elevation
Viticulture- Prunes to only four bunches of grapes per vine (the norm is between five and seven) which concentrates the vines' growing power and cuts down on the need for green harvests.

Aging- Oak barrels for up to 12 months
