ITEM 8556296 - Removed from a professional wine storage facility
Very pretty...with orange-peel, leather, spice and plum character. Medium body, firm tannins and a juicy finish.
It has a lean appearance with flashes of black licorice and scorched earth, along with some interesting tar or asphalt notes.
Walks the line between dusty cherry fruit and leather and tobacco flavors, buoyed by vibrant acidity and light tannins that leave a dusting of cocoa and spice on the finish. Elegant, yet intense.
Fragrant blue-flower, rose and chopped mint aromas lead the nose along with a whiff of eucalyptus. The taut medium-bodied palate offers sour cherry, cranberry, dried sage and a white-pepper note alongside youthfully austere fine-grained tannins and firm acidity.
