Sexy, floral- and mineral-accented red fruit aromas pick up a smoky nuance with air. Lithe and precise, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that gain weight and power in the glass...excellent finishing clarity and sweet, gently tannic persistence.
Immediately this smells complete and lusty: aromas of lemon peel, berry fruits, vanilla and char are attractive. In the mouth, this feels robust but blocky and tannic. Flavors of plum and blueberry are peppery and moderately complex, while this is drawing, dry and tannic on the finish.
Leaner on the palate, less flesh, more streamlined but not lacking in fruit. Dry, mineral and super-fine tannins, long dusty finish.
