Very deep garnet red. Very expressive nose of red fruit complemented by notes of truffle and black olive. The palate is taut and elegant with a freshness that offers superbly subtle spicy and floral notes. Finely grained tannins accompany a supple smoothness and great depth. A powerful and succulent wine. A magnificent Syrah from the South.
