Really vibrant and colorful on the nose with elegantly lifted notes of roses and violets ,along with sappy sweetness and ripe strawberries. Full-bodied with silky, fine tannins and a bit of saltiness. The intensity here swells at first, but then mellows into a bed of juicy dark fruit and roasted herbs. The sap comes through again at the finish. Drinkable now, but best after 2023.
Softly stewed raspberry and poached plum aromas meet with hibiscus and rose potpourri on the nose... Tart red-plum and strawberry tones engage the palate, where a snappy acidity carries a lingering hint of fennel pollen into the texturally taut finish.
Slate and forest floor notes accent the firm mix of roasted cherry and dried berry flavors. Ends with hints of dried sage on the well-structured finish.
