The medium-high intensity nose seems shy, but offers bright cherry, clove, baking spice, and some dried cherry and flower aromas. It's medium-bodied on the palate with very nice aroma replays and smooth, fine tannins. Finely balanced overall with fresh acids. Shows excellent length on the finish with earth and forest floor notes. Tasted Oct/2017.
