"The wine is comprised of Mediterranean varietals: Marselan, Caladoc and Carignan with a small amount of Pinotage. The different wines mature in oak casks for a period of 12 months before being blended to produce this original combination. The wine has an intense and complex aroma, which is made up of milk chocolate, strawberry and raspberry with thyme weeds and tobacco. The wine is invigorating, with smooth tannins, a refreshing acidity, a hint of chocolate, leather, coffee, and white pepper. A real Mediterranean wine, that is drinkable now but will only get better after maturation in comfortable conditions." - winemaker
"An interesting blend of 53% Marselan, 20% Caledoc, 15% Pinotage and 12% Carignan, this starts off a bit rubbery, but that quickly blows off to reveal attractive scents of blackberry and plum flesh. The medium-weight palate has a texture like crushed velvet and is loaded with ripe black-fruit flavors, while accents of cocoa nib and tobacco unfold on the finish." - Lauren Buzzeo, Wine Enthusiast
