This wine maintains a tight, polished and traditional personality. It plays perfectly into the house style that favors an elegant and less extracted approach. Yet you also sense the extra sunshine and warmth of the vintage in those aromas of wild cherry, plum and crushed flowers.
Fascinating pumice, dried red cherries and spices here. Fruity and succulent with a level of gravitas to the drying, structured tannins that keep the palate quite taut and firm. Medium-long on the finish.
Dark-skinned berry, leather and cooking-spice aromas lift out of the glass. The balanced savory palate offers dried black cherry, tobacco and black pepper alongside fine-grained tannins.
