(aged in neutral French oak barrels) Deep ruby. Complex, highly perfumed dark berry, succulent herb and Asian spice scents, along with a building floral quality. Sweet and velvety in the mouth, offering deep-pitched flavors of black raspberry, anise and smoky minerals. Very long and perfumed on the finish, where harmonious tannins add gentle grip.
