The nose is pure and soft; a bouquet of hazelnut and sweet oak tones fill the glass. A concise perfume note keeps the wine’s focus in the midst of richer scents of anise and mocha. This wine delivers on flavor, living up to its gorgeous nose.
It is soft and smooth on entry. Floral notes evolve into flavors of dark cherry and blackberry on the palate. Precise, fine grained tannins will allow it to age gracefully. The 2014 is both approachable and enjoyable, even in its youth.
