This is a white wine that features aromas of white flowers and lemon. Marsanne/Roussanne - Le Paradis Saint-Pierre is an example of this. It has the smell of honey flavors, but when tasting, it has a taste of mineral and fresh. Barbera - This wine has the aroma of blackberries and spicy notes. Dolcetto - This has the aroma of fruit and herbs. Carignan - Orzada Carignan has the aromas of red fruit like strawberries and plums. Grenache - This red wine has flavorful tones of red plums. Rhone - Similar to Granche, this wine has plum flavors along with cherry. Cabernet Franc - This wine is described as powerful, with aromas of black cherry compote and spice dried tomato.
