Nose

Aromas of dried currants and licorice, floral notes of an English Garden: a medley of lavender, sage, thyme and a hint of violets. Youthful berry fruit lies beneath the more outward floral expression.

Palate

On the palate, the wine is at once firm yet supple and sensual. It is brimming with flavors of wild berries, cassis, and pomegranate, followed by savory notes of mocha, vanillin, and round chewy tannins. Sandalwood and Indian spice aromatics linger in the finish.
