Bright cherry, Asian spice, orange rind, and granite minerality. Firm tannins and plenty of acid will allow this one to develop for years!

Plenty of secondary notes at 11 years of age. Drink up if you have them.

Cherry cola, bark. Great intensity but still a relatively light bodied wine

The nose alone is worth the price of admission. What a beautiful and graceful wine! I feel it can even get better over the next year or two.

Lots of depth to the nose: strawberry preserves, soy, anise, dried flowers. Nice acidity, fruit, mouthfeel, tannins and texture. My preference is for a touch less ripeness´┐╝ and more elegance but this is full of character and complexity!
