From 65 year old vines, this has a medium+ intensity nose of sour cherry, blackberry, currant, and spice. The medium-bodied palate is rich, nicely textured, and fruit forward with nice spice and stony mineral notes. It has smooth, polished tannins annd very good acids. Sweet spice and curranty notes on the long, balanced finish. Tasted May/2019.
