This wine showcases a rich and powerful vintage. The nose unfolds in layers of red, black and blueberry fruits highlighted with plums, allspice, anise, and jasmine. There is also an intriguing element reminiscent of a toasty, flaky piecrust to the wine along with pepper and cocoa aromas. On the palate, the complexity continues with the addition of raspberries, red currants, cedar, pie cherries reinforced with more plums, anise and cocoa. Every sip is wrapped in accessible and savory tannins. There is a beautiful yet youthful balance to the wine with a seamless finish.
