The 2010 is a deep red color. The nose conjures up things both sweet and savory. Cassis, candied apples, vanilla bean, red licorice ropes, and cured ham come immediately to mind.
Has the tell-tale melted wax and red currants, but is made even more complex by the smell of lilac! It is a fresh mouthful of a wine that is loaded with flavor without being heavy.
Sweet and viscous, it possesses a mouthwatering acidity that enables it to fill the entire palate.
Flavors of berry liqueur, smoky sweet oak, toasted walnuts, and grenadine linger on the palate crafting quite an expressive wine.
Notable for its incredible freshness of fruit, its mouth-watering acidity, and quenching grip, it brings to mind Malbec of the Loire Valley rather than the highly extracted Argentine reds.
Flavor and structural attributes that highlight explosive fruit, spicy wood, and mouth-filling tannins.
