TASTING NOTE: Dark plums and morello cherries combine with fresher nuances of blueberries and violets, as well as dark chocolate, vanilla and cloves on the nose. Lots of minerally undertones, too. Wonderful acidity/fruit tension to this on the palate with a really round core of dark fruit, bolstered by foursquare tannins. Chewy on the rather long finish. Drink in 2023.
