"Dark purple. Ripe cherry and cassis aromas are complicated by suggestions of cracked pepper and licorice. Spicy black and blue fruit and floral pastille flavors open up with air and show good depth and clarity. The spicy quality carries through the finish, which features supple tannins and a whisper of allspice." Josh Raynolds
Elegant flowers and aromatic herb (lavender, violet, sarriette/summer savoury) married to pure fresh black fruits, cherry, light kirsch, liquorice, and lightly torrefied spice; fine depth and mineral base. Very stylish balance and concentration, focused on front and centre palates, with rich aromatic tannins encased in fruit, mineral and fresh beneath, and long broad spicy development and finish.
