(From 2013 Vintage) This beautiful wine offers a simply outstanding array of complex aromas, opening with fresh raspberry, black cherry preserves, strawberry rhubarb pie, rose petals, and violets. Traces of dried figs, Forest Nameko mushrooms, anise, and cloves balance the spectrum. Elegant fresh and dried fruit flavors liberally coat the palate while silky, seductive tannins carry through to a savory, persistent finish.
Aromas of violets and raspberries lead to a delicious core of plum, wild berries and spice. The flavors are endless on the palate, and culminate with refreshing acidity and a just a hint of structure building tannin on the finish. This wine is seamless and clean, shows wonderful purity of fruit and exhibits classic balance between its many fruit and structural components.
