Drink: 2018 – 2023
Opaque ruby. Intense cherry, raspberry and floral oil scents, plus suggestions of incense and white pepper. At once juicy and seamless, with gently sweet red berry and cherry flavors fleshing out with aeration. Silky and suave in character, finishing with excellent clarity and persistence and gentle tannins that frame the exuberant fruit.
