...Pliant, racy and succulent... Sweet red and purplish berries, spice and lavender open up first, with a kick of bright blood orange-infused acids that perk up the flavors. Soft curves and ripe, silky tannins make the 2017 impossible to resist. This is such a gorgeous wine.
Mouthfilling flavors of dark cherry, plum tart and blackberry are supported by medium-grained tannins and bright acidity. The finely textured finish offers sandalwood notes and hints of cream, as well as minerally accents.
...restrained yet exuberantly spicy aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry and red currant. The sleeker if not quite as concentrated middle weight flavors possess a sophisticated and refined mouthfeel before terminating in a complex, dusty and sneaky long finish that also flirts with austerity.
