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.
Blueberry and white peach aromas swirl yin-yan-like inside layers of vanilla and sweet butter. Fresh fruit compote comes to mind.
Enters the mouth very softly due to the lower alcohol and gentle tannins. It is delicate in structure but packed with flavor.
Fresh blackberry syrup, fresh ground black pepper (floral and spicy), and fresh thyme dominate the aroma. The mouth is densely flavored, plush, and succulent.
Aromas of Kirsch-like fruit, walnut liqueur, and something akin to membrillo. The mouth is a real surprise in its lively presentation of fruit, acid, and tannin.
