New leather, exotic spice, camphor and fragrant blue-flower aromas mingle with an earthy whiff of underbrush. On the savory palate, taut tightly knit fine-grained tannins and bright acidity provide the backbone for juicy red cherry, cranberry, licorice and cinnamon.
Layered and gracious, with lovely translucent energy and aromatic lift... Sweet red cherry, tobacco and orange peel add shades of dimension.
...strawberries, subtle leather and a citrus character. A little austere, but there is solid fruit under the tannins. Medium body and a fresh finish.
Some tarriness on the nose and really really fresh fruit of a grenadine nature. So cleansing with fine tannins that are only in the background. Firm, dry, refreshing finish and no hint of alcohol. Really rather a beauty.
