Black ruby color. Aromas and flavors of mixed berry compote, graham cracker, ganache, and raspberry pastilles with a slightly chewy, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a silky, delightful, medium-length finish with light oak flavor. A balanced and friendly Southwestern French Red with bold berry notes and wide appeal.

High-quality wines, without the Bordeaux price tag, can be found throughout the southwestern (or, in French, "Sud-Ouest") part of France. At 120,000 acres, the South West of France is the country's 5th largest wine region, being divided into four subregions of its own (Bergerac & Dordogne River, Garonne & Tarn, Lot River, and Pyrénées); each possessing distinctive climates, character, and grapes.
