Very tasty and well made without being too over the top or ripe. Nose of ripe cherries, raspberries, cranberries, smoke, violets, vanilla and a hint of anise. The flavours carry through to the palate, supported by subtle oakiness. Decidedly European, but with just the right amount of new world sensibility. Nice acid balance, silky tannins and a nice, long finish.
