Dark cherry, plum, lavender, mint, wild herbs and smoke infuse... Dark, powerful and brooding, but also very much medium-bodied in structure, the 2013 is wonderfully complete and full of allure. There is plenty of tannin, but the wine is impeccably balanced from start to finish.
The bouquet is dark and brooding with blackberry and tangy aromas of spice and smoky ash.
There is density to the tannins here, providing support for the cherry, menthol, leather and tobacco flavors. A mineral note joins the mix as this plays out on the long finish.
