Tasting notes on the wine: 

"Garnet in color with purple reflections. The nose reveals a lovely bouquet with violets as the main note, followed by fruity aromas of cherry, blackberry, and plum. There’s a wonderful amount of tannins in this smooth, slightly spicy wine. Particularly enjoyable on the table alongside lasagna, meatballs, or red meat." — Eric Moorer

About the winemaker: 

"Regis and Christine Pichon left careers in hospitality in 2005 to move to the small village of Aspiran in the Languedoc. There, with about 7.5 hectares of vines on sloping hills, they grow a range of grapes from cinsault, syrah, and grenache to roussanne and clairette." — Eric Moorer
