Brilliant violet. Vibrant cherry and black currant scents are complemented by suggestions of black pepper, licorice and olive paste. Tout and structured on entry, then fleshier in the midpalate, offering smoke-tinged dark berry and bitter cherry flavors that are sweetened by a floral pastille nuance. Fine-grained tannins build steadily on the finish, which lingers with very good, spicy persistence. This wine is showing distinct Old World character.

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES
This bold wine leads with bright, saturated aromas of olive, cranberry, and raspberry. Secondary notes of peppercorns, cacao, and espresso are noted with aromas that are bright, full and delicious. On the palate, the wine is mid weight with light, delicate tannins. Flavors feel generous yet buoyed with a bright core, and they run the spectrum of raspberry, dark chocolate, and loads of spice. This is delicious now, though should provide plenty of enjoyment for some time.
