Nose

aromas of rose petal and raspberry.

Palate

Ripe strawberry, raspberry and floral notes are predominant upon the first sip and yield to layers of baking spice, vanilla and toasted oak. This wine is perfectly balanced with a texture that is elegant, yet full. Soft, supple tannins build on the middle palate and carry this youthful fruit into a long, polished finish.

Aging

French oak barrels (59% new, 41% once-used)
