91% Carignan, 9% Cabernet

An intoxicating nose of black licorice, currant, fig, petrichor and yuzu ponzu. The palate offers a compelling mix of dark chocolate, dried coriander, huckleberries and cedar that evolve into a round, opulent midpalate. Despite its intensity and power, this finishes with a zippy acidity leaving you begging for another taste.
