An expressive nose of ripe red cherries and plums, sweet spice and blood orange peel jump out of the glass. On the palate it has a rich mouthfeel with taught ripe tannins and a great backbone of acidity, that envelope a myriad of aromas that carry through from the nose. Crushed rose petals and herbal notes linger on the finish. This wine has a real freshness to it that belies the heat of the vintage. Approachable in the next couple of years but certainly one that will age beautifully too. Extremely enjoyable. Drink 2024-2040.
