Sophisticated, pretty, brilliant in exotic cherry, raspberry and earth. Bright and lush on the palate, the tannins are firmly structured and nicely rendered with a twinge of sweet tobacco and a subtle power that builds on the finish.
Rich, intense, plenty of power, but the profile is a bit more savory and mineral-driven than in the Pastorale, with less mid-palate exuberance & plenty of persistence. Hints of rose petal, lavender & cinnamon add the final layers of nuance.
