Lots of blueberries and slate with crushed stone and concrete. Full body. Linear and refined with super fine tannins. Bright acidity and graphite undertones. Driven and agile. Dances on the palate.
...the palate is explosive and very varietal, vibrant, lively and integrated, like biting into a ripe bunch of Graciano grapes.
Highly expressive, smoke-accented cherry and blueberry aromas are complicated by floral, vanilla and exotic spice notes. Sappy, sweet and broad on the palate, offering ripe red and blue fruit, mocha and floral pastille flavors that become spicier as the wine opens up. Shows solid thrust on the long, oak-spiced finish, which is framed by gently chewy tannins.
