The 2013 vintage opens with a bouquet of mountain flowers, rose petals and violets that dot the hillsides.


On the palate we find aromas and flavors of fresh raspberry tart, Luxardo cherries, dried apricots, plum skins, and bramble berries. The elegant structure and ripe tannins display the dusty, slightly cooler nature of the vineyard and combine with a lively freshness and aromas of cocoa powder, allspice, cinnamon, and sweet tobacco leaf that continue to evolve through the long, elegant finish.
