Tasting Notes

This vintage shows lively spices and ripe berry nuances. Aromas of red cherry, dried flowers and pepper fill the senses. The palate is full of wonderful fruity complexity, combining a mixture of red plum, black cherry and red cherry. There’s a spicy undertone and the tannins are silky and smooth.
