Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright ruby red with a pale ruby rim. Wildly and soulfully aromatic (garrigue de Salinas Valley?), with floral herbs, menthol, and a little fennel in evidence. Bright cherry, fresh red currant, and cranberry flavors undergirded with forest floor and mushroom. Counter-intuitively, there seems to be greater grip on the palate than with the demi-muid. The en foudre bottling is about soulful depth, there is a line that runs through it from the filigreed aroma all the way to the great depth of the wine’s very lingering finish.
