(From 2011 Vintage) Then I noticed strawberry jam, slight oak notes and a hint of soap. On the palate the wine was medium bodied with sour cherry, raspberry. I still got lavender and slight oaky smoke. The wine was a tad too astringent for my taste, but it had a nice level of tannins with a short finish. The acidity made the wine seem a bit off balance.
Bright, ruby-red. The bouquet is intense, fragrant with elegant scents of iris and raspberries and spices. The taste is dry, full and harmonious with an elegant aftertaste of toasted almonds and fruit.
