Aromas of spiced cherries dominate the alluring nose, accompanied by cassis, dark plum, and a savory touch of anise.
Smooth and juicy on the entry, the palate builds quickly with full mouthfeel and bright acidity. There is a clean elegant progression of lush plum, bright cherry, tart red currant all riding on abundant but not overpowering tannin. The spiced cherries make a reappearance late in the finish. Sit with this one for a while, get to know it, and enjoy the evolution. Elegantly powerful now, this will be a real stunner in 10-15 years.
