Inky ruby. Heady aromas of red and dark berry preserves, potpourri, bayberry, minerals and smoked meat, plus a suave note of star anise. Sweet, focused and extremely fresh, offering vivid raspberry and candied cherry flavors and finishing with a powerful floral quality. Open-knit and delicious right now; there's no reason not to drink this now but I have no doubt that it will hold well for at least a few more years. This is a remarkable value.
