Slightly herbaceous aromas of currant, tobacco leaf, menthol, milk chocolate and spices, plus a note of rose petal. Then fine-grained and rather suave in the mouth, with the herbal element carrying through.
A red with ripe-berry and floral aromas. It’s a little lifted. Medium body, round and polished tannins and a medium finish. A medium-velvety texture.
The wine is medium-bodied and focused in the mouth, with a spiced center across the mid-palate. As the wine opens on the palate, it shows an open-knit expression that has soft elements of fern and dusty notes that build with food-friendly acidity. The finish is rich and still tight, with a clean core that will last for more than a decade.
