NVWE Notes: This sophisticated bottling offers a complex melange of fruity, savory and mineral-edged aromas. The nose is forthcoming, with scents of black raspberry, black cherry, sour red cherry, red currant, violet, dark rose, clove, baking-spice, licorice root, saddle leather, dark forest earth and graphite. It proves bright, yet well-evolved on the palate, where it is firmed by tannins that are reinforced by both fruit zest and a more prominent graphite-mineral note. The finish is generous and food-worthy and the lingering flavors are a mirror of the aromas. 121 cases produced.
