Myst 2016

Glamorous Myst distinguishes itself by a bright pink robe, with silvery glints. Feather-shaped, the label is a symbol of lightness. Aromas of the charming Lebanese Cinsault reveal subtle floral nuances and notes of forest berries and lychee. The Syrah softly fills the palate with flavors of redcurrant, strawberry and a final hint of blackcurrant.
