The nose is really spot-on here, delivering a wholesome array of fresh hibiscus, redcurrants, fruit tea and rose petals. The palate is very silky and polished, weaving its way neatly through finely arranged layers of bright red fruit. Medium-to full-bodied and wonderfully elegant.
...fine tannins and a good dose of acidity...very tight and and precise wine, with notes of exotic tea that follow blackberry, dried cherry and licorice.
... Rose petal, chalk, pine and a host of mineral and floral notes...huge fruit...impressive.
Enticing scents of iris, botanical herbs and woodland berries are front and center on this fragrant red. The firm palate offers Marasca cherry, pomegranate, star anise and white pepper alongside youthfully assertive, fine-grained tannins.
Pure and smooth in texture, featuring cherry, plum, soy, tar, tobacco and eucalyptus flavors that stay focused from beginning to end...the tannins have a plumpness to them. Gains equilibrium in the end.
... Savoury, smoky cherry, underpinned by slaty minerality and nutty oak. Expressive... High, chalky, primary tannins, with depth of smoky, flinty minerality and savoury, dried cherry. Long.
