Supple, velvety, focused and distinctive, with smoky, minerally accents around a core of cherry, raspberry and blueberry fruit. Finishes with presence and persistence on an open texture.
International Wine CellarRuby-red. Dark, musky plum, cherry and blackberry and cola on the nose, with complicating notes of underbrush, dried flowers and licorice. Dried dark berry flavors are braced by zesty minerality and gentle tannins, with an exotic twist of sassafras on the back. Alluringly earthy, floral and sweet on the precise, understated finish.
