Exhibits a fascinating mix of aromas and flavors with a beautiful tension between fresh and cooked fruits, floral notes and meatiness, and bright, weighty acidity.
Flavor and structural attributes that highlight explosive fruit, spicy wood, and mouth-filling tannins.
Tremendous fruit flavors and textural depth. The list of aroma descriptors and flavors is long and includes white strawberries, clover, spearmint, beeswax, green hay, and apricot nectar.
Driven by flavor and acidity rather than by tannin and heat from alcohol. More reminiscent of Old World than of New.
Walks the line between fruit and vegetable, and sweet and savory. The cooler vintage definitely made its imprint on this wine with subtle fresh wax and cherry blossom undertones.
Loaded with deep, dark, blue fruit smells. Underneath the fruit lies a savory salt-cured meat aroma that really gets you salivating. The mouth is round, sweet feeling (though it’s bone-dry), and just plain delicious.
