(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.
Mouthwatering aromas of blackberry, tea leaf, tobacco, cola, anise and violets fill the glass to the brim, enticing the senses. Brandy-soaked black cherries, seasoned oak and savory balsamic reduction mingle on the palate, followed by an elegant backbone of firm tannins and vibrant acidity.
