A nose of black raspberries interwoven with floral notes of blackcurrants and spice... Sweet, velvety tannin, medium to full body, and extraordinary complexity and elegance
This boasts real density of extract without any undue heaviness and offers the balance and backbone for a long and positive evolution in bottle. Very long on personality.
Smooth, rich and savory, with dried currant, wild berry and black cherry fruit that has a dusty, savory herb and underbrush flavor that adds complexity, ending with a pretty burst of ripe fruit.
Well melded. Fine tannins with some raciness that may have been helped by the temperate end to the growing season. Good balancing act between richness and delicacy.
