...modest nose of black cherries, raspberry and a touch of bergamot tea... The palate is well balanced with supple and quite fine tannin, a keen line of acidity with satisfying tension. It has a modern veneer, especially on the sweet finish, yet there is good quality fruit in situ.
Lovely class and lift to the aromas of dark raspberry, bitter cherry, flowers, minerals and crushed stone. Urgent red and purple fruit flavors show outstanding penetration and delineation yet come across as remarkably refined and smooth. A salty character adds another dimension to the very long, vibrant, backward finish.
