Medium+ intensity nose is rich, fresh and spicy with mineral, black plum, violet, and dark berry aromas. The medium-full bodied palate is dense with smooth and structured tannins and lovely spicy aroma replays. Very good acidity. Touches of balsamic on the long finish. Enjoy over the next 5-6 years. Tasted May/2019.
