The nose is pretty and elegant, with hints of mineral, earth, red fruit and a touch of tar and coffee, adding richness and weight. The palate enters with moderate acid and a complex array of floral notes, cherry cola and mulling spices. Juicy dark red fruit and marmalade pith round out the mid-palate. The finish is supple and continually evolving with lovely long-chain silk nap tannins.
