TASTING NOTE: Deep, bright-hued red. Fresh red berry and rose oil scents pick up suggestions of cola and allspice as the wine opens up. Silky and seamless on the palate, offering bitter cherry and raspberry flavors enlivened by a gentle spicy element. The floral note comes back steadily on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with very good tenacity. 17% new oak. Drinking window: 2021-2026.
