Tasting Notes

Loaded with bass notes and complex undertones which interplay beautifully with exploding aromas of blackberry, dried apricot, dried cherries, jasmine tea, minerals, graphite, rosemary, fennel seed, forest duff, bread grains and almond pastry. Flavors of milk chocolate and dark fruits are integrated and proportioned across a foundation of dense tannins for beautiful mouth feel, fresh and snappy acidity, and ripe fruit.
