This very opaque-purple wine is loaded with big blackberry fruit, bilberry, oak, earth/soil, and a touch of pencil led. It speaks to the place of it's origin and expresses black soil-like notes and a hints of herb.
On the palate the wine has bold spicy black currant flavors combined with hints of black licorice and graham cracker. (Thanks Jedd for the graham cracker aroma!) This wine is dry and full bodied and finishes with medium to long length.
To be quite honest I was expecting a bit less because I haven't experienced too many quality wines from this region in the past. I have tasted dozens of Languedoc wines that I thought were mediocre at best but this is actually really good stuff. 88+ Points
