TASTING NOTES

Moody, complex and brooding, this is a superb wine. The nose is loaded with mineral and blackberry notes. Purple violets, black forest cake, cocoa nibs abound on the nose, backed by dark juicy black raspberries. Full and firmly structured in the mouth with notes of pepper, tea, smoked meat and black fruit on the palate. Generously juicy on the palate, it exudes youthful fruit backed by terroir-influenced notes. The tannins are structured and lightly sinewy yet soft all at once. Old World in style, with evident fruit purity and provenance of place.
