This bottle has a very fragrant nose, with blueberry and sweet cherry, earth, clove, rose petal, and mineral notes. It is not as full on the palate as it is dark and inky, but there’s a heft of acid and tannin that results in a well structured wine. Red fruit, tobacco and a tinge of bitterness finishes off nicely. This wine would fare well on the table.
