Tasting Notes

Deep bright-hued magenta. Mineral-accented blackberry, cherry, olive paste and violet aromas pick up mineral and smoked meat flourishes as the wine opens up. Shows very good energy on the palate, offering sappy, spice-tinged black and blue fruit flavors and hints of floral pastilles, licorice and cracked pepper. The floral note carries through a youthfully chewy and persistent finish, which leaves a vibrant mineral note behind. Drink between 2024-2033
