A slyly seductive wine whose attractiveness flows out of the glass as you let the wine evolve. Delicate aromas of strawberry pot de crème, rose water, and Van cherry intermix initially on the nose, followed by deeper tones of dark chocolate and fresh plums, with hints of sweet anise to round out the bouquet. The palate is fresh and lively, with nice structure and a solid backbone. The body is medium weight with a solid middle carrying onto a nice long finish. Flavors match the aromas with a bend towards more earthy and forest tones. Overall the wine is nicely layered which is indicative of the multiple pedigree sights the fruit is sourced from.
