Immediately rich and complex, with racy violet, rose, black cherry and dark licorice, complemented by notes of white pepper, cloves and soft leather. An intriguing mineral character adds to the bouquet. Full and mouth-coating on entry and throughout the mid-palate, the wine shows layers of ripe, dark and juicy fruits, black cherry, plum and sweet blueberry. Licorice and dark chocolate notes further enhance the complexity. A hallmark of this wine in great vintages is the laser-perfect balance of acidity and tannin, giving freshness and incredible length to the finish. Well-integrated oak amplifies the structure without interfering with its elegance and drinkability.
