13% alcohol. Deep purple-red color; nearly opaques. Rather a grapey note with some sharp spiciness on the tongue tip. Might improve with one or two more years in bottle. I was disappointed at first but it improved with some air. It became less grapey and evoked dark-skinned plums with mild tannins on the finish. Now I know why I purchased it after a tasting in Charlotte in April. Give plenty of aeration if drinking now or hold for a year or two.
I paired it with hamburger with diced onions, Worcestershire sauce and Swiss cheese on buttered and broiled hamburger buns and corn on the cob the first evening. Another evening I had it with beef taco.

Moulin-a-Vent and Chiroubles are my fav burger wines.
