The nose is laced with dark cherry, black raspberry and spiced plum sauce, with a spicy mineral tone. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied and remains spicy and tannic, with soft tones of bitter black tea, finishing with hints of oak and vanilla.
Alluring, aromatically pure perfume of raspberry, plum, spices, white pepper and orange peel. Vibrant and sharply delineated, with a subtle salinity to its flavors of red berries, spices and orange zest. Lovely inner-mouth tension here, and not at all overoaked...
Well-built and persistent, with blueberry, bacon fat and bitter chocolate accents that build density toward polished tannins.
