(From 2013 Vintage) Opaque and purple to the rim of the glass, an elevated display of aromatics is immediately present. Fragrant dark fruits, spring flowers, violet, and hint of garrigue greet the nose and tempt added review. Extraordinary freshness is present upon entry leading to lush flavors of sweet boysenberries, kirsch, licorice, dark cherries, and exotic floral notes. The palate is thoroughly treated and left with a finish of bright acidity and round tannins, which exist in seamless balance.
Give it a minute to breathe. Strong alcohol in the beginning, but fruit notes are unlocked as the wine opens up.
Too fruity -not earthy enough. Finish was much the same.
We love this wine. Smooth and fruity
