International Wine CellarOrange-pink. Redcurrant, cherry, dried flowers, botanical herbs and minerals on the nose. Pliant red fruit and poached pear flavors are lifted by smoky minerals; benefited greatly from aeration, picking up floral pastille and anise qualities. A rather open-knit version of this always complex bottling, finishing with gentle grip and a suave echo of flowers and smoky minerals.
