Rockstar wine. Lots of life ahead of it. Bright fruits, stems and texture. Oh the texture

Striking aromas of lavender/rose petal, dark cherry, herb. Feminine yet mid-weight on the palate with dark cherry, nutmeg, and a herbal note. Perhaps a bit thin mid-palate but is framed nicely by silky tannin and nice acidity. Rhys provided tonite!
