On the nose, ripe, lightly spiced, floral fruits of; blackberries, dark cherries, strawberries, black plum, plum and cherries. Dark rich soil, crush rocks, leather with dark red & blue flowers and violets.

The body is full, beautiful round, soft & elegant. The fruits are perfectly ripe. Spiced blackberries, dark cherries, strawberries, black plum, plum, bigger minerality, cherries, dark rich soil, graphite, some pepper, chewy leather, crush rocks, leather with dark red & blue flowers and violets. Beautiful acidity, the round, ripe, elegant, well balanced finish is amazing.

All the wines we tasted were still extremely fresh.
