Deep ruby. High-pitched aromas of candied red fruits, violet and white pepper, along with a zesty mineral quality and a touch of anise. Nervy and precise, offering pure redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that become sweeter with air. Gains weight with air and finishes with gentle tannic grip and lingering minerality. This wine could use at least a few more years to unwind.
