In the glass, the wine pours a brilliant light ruby color with tawny highlights. The nose is hauntingly aromatic, emitting pristine aromas of red cherry, raspberry and ripe strawberry all underpinned by a delicate combination of spice and floral notes that effortlessly waft from the glass. Layered and elegant on the palate, the wine showcases loads of soft, satin tannins perfectly balanced by a brisk acidity and concentrated fruit flavors that deliver power and refreshment. The finish is stunning, delivering layer upon layer of complex flavors with incredible panache and depth.
