Dusty ruby black color. Rustic, interesting aromas and flavors of herbal tomato sauce, salt cured cherry, allspice, and juniper with a chewy, bright, dry full body and a snappy finish that shows accents of green olives, capers, pomegranate custard tart, and dusty minerals with chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. An intensely herbal and dry cotes de Bordeaux with lovely salinity.
