Expressing a deep and dark fruit-scented nose of black cherries and black currants layered with lavender, hoisin spice and earthy loam notes. The bouquet reveals anise seed, cedar and Provence herbs as well. The flavor mirrors this complexity with Bing cherries, raspberries, red currants, cedar spice, toasty meringue and pie dough. Structurally this wine showcases the pedigree of the vineyard. There is a wonderful combination of concentration, elegance and a sense of perfect ripeness. The fruit and spices bask in youthful tannins continuing to an endless finish — I love the mouthwatering savory nature of this wine. It is built to age.
