The nose is fresh and pure, with aromas of ripe plums and blackberries, spearmint, violet, and hints of cocoa, roasted red peppers, and light smoke, tobacco, and forest floor. The fruit is equally fresh on the palate, but with more of a dark cherry flavour. Though the body is not too much more than medium, the wine has ample structure, due to its medium-high acidity and firm, chalky tannins. Finishes with dark fruit, cocoa, and mint. Elegant and pure overall. It should last another 5-10 years easily thanks to the tannins.
