(2011 Vintage) COLOR: Bright red. NOSE: Youthful. Fruit-pastille, blue fruits, wine gum aromatics. Stylistically genteel ... an altogether different style. Fruit-derived scents of violet, lavender and talc apparent. Oak present, yet well-hidden. PALATE: Medium-bodied. Balanced, youthful, bright. Cranberry, boysenberry and mulberry fruits laced with star anise and cardamom. Defined, granular and cohesive tannins; integrated and supportive oak.
