Maquis Lien Red Wine 2006
A deep violet color, there are several layers of complex aromas. The ripe fruit is intense, but fresh and clean, with blackberries and plums from the Syrah and Malbec, red fruit, black chocolate and spicy aromas from Cabernet Franc, Carmenere and Petit Verdot.
The mouth is wonderfully balanced and rich. A core of ripe fruit and silky tannins provide roundness, structure, smooth mouthfeel and a full mid-palate. The mineral qualities and juicy dark berry flavors along with well-integrated oak components give the wine depth and refined elegance.
