This has a multi-faceted nose that makes us so enthralled with the variety. Here the nose combines exotic baking spice and earth tones, tea leaf, sandal wood, then some clove and star anise over riding ripe red cherries aromatically. Medium bodied, cherry fruit flavors, dark and red, come to the fore, with some savory, spicy undertones supported with beautiful tannin structure that gives firmness on the finish while adding a velvety textural feel. The juicy and brighter pitched red fruit is in perfect balance with enlivening acidity that leads to a long mouthwatering finish. This is a gorgeous bottle of wine with a number of years in front of it. This is quite delicious and an exceptional value.
