Tasting Notes

**Note: from a tiny .18 ha parcel**
This possesses the most complex and the most complete nose in the range and is noticeably more elegant than the Malconsorts as it offers up compelling aromas of extremely fresh and airy red berry fruit and spice tones that transfer to the rich, full and serious yet lacy flavors brimming with dry extract and supported by dense but fine tannins that are almost completely buffered on the powerful and balanced finish by all of the mid-palate sap. An understated effort that exudes class.
