Sweet violets and roses give way to black cherries, balsamic spices and white smoke...undeniably elegant and refined style, casting a polished display of licorice-tinged blackberries and savory herbs across a core of brisk acidity... Rich notes of mocha contrast fresh mint and salty minerals, as this finishes impossibly long with an umami feel.
...plenty of ripe blackberry and Morello cherry, with the baked aromas...
...lots of red fruit and a cumin-like edge that is very enticing. Medium-to full-bodied with the same intense fruit and spice character. Firm tannins just add intensity to the fruit.
A subtle Amarone, with supple tannins providing gentle definition for flavors of baked cherry, dates and accents of spiced orange peel and medicinal herbs. A touch of loamy earth lingers on the chewy finish.
