(2014 Vintage) Deep ruby with purple hues. Pronounced aromas of ripe raspberry, plum, blackberry, with hints of white flowers and lavender, complimented by savoury nuances of black pepper, bay leaf and charcuterie. The palate displays focused raspberry and dark plum fruits, with lively acidity and beautifully balanced fine, soft tannins providing texture, for a long, structured finish.
