Wonderful purity of fruit to this red with strawberry, cherry and orange-peel aromas. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a creamy, silky-textured finish. All in finesse here.
...the bouquet opens surely and steadily... As it moves forward, it imparts tones of dried cherry, grilled herb and licorice root. The wine moves over the palate with soft intensity and mid-weight appeal. It offers more in terms of persistence than it does weight or density.
...offering modest cherry fruit, this leans more to the savory side, with leafy, eucalyptus, menthol, juniper and tobacco notes. Dense tannins guard the finish.
