Beautifully balanced, exhibiting cherry, strawberry, floral and mineral flavors. Elegant and taut, with terrific length and a touch of oak spice on the finish. Best from 2022 through 2038.
  • Winemaking

    Aged on the lees for 16 months with no racking using a proportion of 30% new French oak barrels that had been toasted at low temperatures for a long time to impart a very delicate touch of oak to the wine.

  • Nose

    Delicate nose, with floral aromas as rose, fresh strawberry and a hint of leather.

  • Palate

    Great body, silky texture and lovely tannins.
