Dark garnet in color with fresh aromas of violet, cherry blossom and wild flowers seamlessly blending with red and black fruit. Burlat cherry meets blackcurrant jam and finishes with an intriguing hint of spice. The smooth palate brings black cherry into play, adding fresh raspberry and ripe blueberry flavors, before finishing with firm tannins and bright acidity.
This is one of the wines in a joint venture between Bertrand Vigouroux of Cahors and California winemaker/consultant Paul Hobbs. It is rich without ever being too firm or extracted. The fruits are right there along with vibrant acidity and plenty of room for the wine to open up.
