"A very distinctive nose with a wild array of red berries and cherries and a thread of blue fruit, too. There’s a dried wild rose perfume and a violet like thread with subtle, herbal based notes. It is a moving target in the glass with incredible complexity. This has a gift of revelation. The palate has a very assertive edge with a powerful core of intense tannins that carry a spicy thread of rich dark cherries and dark plums in a defined, savory and athletic stance."
