Brilliant ruby-red. Taut red berry and mineral aromas unfold slowly, picking up a spicy element and a hint of licorice. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red currant flavors and a succulent herb nuance that emerges with aeration. Dusty tannins firm the finish, which leaves notes of cherry pit and white pepper behind.
