    Opened one hour before drinking. Clear, ruby color with a slightly lighter rim. Musty red berries, dry fall leaves and licorice aromas. Powerful, slightly rustic and enticing mouthfeel, medium body and a 150-grit texture. Assertive juicy Maraschino cherries right out of the bottle, strawberry and a little spicy clove flavors. Not overabundant, but nice acidity, soft tannins and a very uplifting bitter fruit finish that ended with just a tiny touch of mineral. WOW, a wonderful blend that really worked together in the glass and had just enough depth to make it noteworthy. We called it a great blend from the South of France that was filled with euphoric characteristics.
