Aromas of sweet, fresh purple berry fruit, plum, black cherry and currant are joined by spice and a hint of tobacco. This is a rich well of aromatic complexity that leads to flavors of blackberry, black currant, and a bit of cafe mocha and spice. Structured by maturing yet still quite present tannins, this mineral-tinged wine is brightened up with a nice hit of balancing acidity and finishes on a note of black tea and flowers. Well made, velvety in texture, and still with plenty of pleasure left to give. Drink now - 2020.
