Complex and expressive on the nose, there are aromas of flower petals, candied dark cherry and plum, interwoven with savory notes, sandalwood and a touch of oak. The first taste presents dark fruit flavors and cherry, with pink peppercorn, rhubarb and five-spices. Ripe, well-integrated tannins are balanced by the graceful structure. While the wine is very pretty and approachable now, it has the charm and persistence to suggest it will effortlessly age over the next 10 years and more.
"Graceful and fragrant, with delicately layered cherry and raspberry flavors laced with rose petal, dusky spices and a hint of fresh forest floor. Ends with refined tannins. Drink now through 2030." The Wine Spectator, 94 Points
