Dusty ruby color. Aromas of red velvet cake, ripe plum, and cherry sorbet with a round, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a warming, interesting, medium-length ripe berries, sage, spiced apple, black tea, licorice, and black pepper finish with moderate oak flavor. A charming Rhone Varietal Blend with excellent food affinity; lengthy.
