Lurid ruby. Spice-accented blackberry and licorice scents show very good clarity and lift. Chewy and energetic in the mouth, offering juicy dark fruit and floral pastille flavors sharpened by a dusty mineral flourish. The floral quality carries through a long, nervy finish that leaves a bitter cherry pit note behind.
  • Winemaking

    Burgundy-style vinification, with 100% destemming but no crushing. The wine was aged in old barrels for 12 months and in tank for 9 months.

  • Nose

    Intense nose of well-integrated oak, black fruit, blueberry, spice, iris and peony.

  • Palate

    Full-bodied on the palate with flavors of black fruit, discreet oak and lovely acidity. The nice length on the finish is accented by a touch of sweetness.
