Sleek and pure-tasting, with lively minerality and forest floor accents to the dried dark cherry and black currant flavors. Shows accents of black olive midpalate, with a long, lilting finish that features hints of dried mint.
Inviting aromas of red and black cherries, plums, figs and dried violets. Full-bodied with fine, well-integrated tannins and very dynamic on the palate. There is great intensity here with the complex, layered flavors of flowers, minerals and ripe fruit. Harmonious, with excellent depth. Tobacco at the finish.
Crisp red fruit and orange peel highlight a lengthy and luxurious palate of balanced freshness in this estate-driven wine. Baking spice and forest echo the site's surrounding oasis of trees, giving the wine a meaty, mushroomy earthiness that appeals.
