Bottling: March 8, 2022.
Alcohol: 14% vol.
Ruby red color. Intense and elegant nose with ripe plum, wood notes and caramel. Round, silky and elegant in the mouth with velvety tannins, which, together with a crisp acidity, gives a wrapped softening mouthfeel.
"Distinctly savory, this red delivers grassy, thyme and menthol aromas and flavors allied to cherry, strawberry and loam. Angular and dense, with the fruit component emerging with air. Deftly balanced and complex, this is long and reveals an aftertaste of cherry, berry, mineral and herbal accents. Best from 2025 through 2043. –Bruce Sanderson.
