"Bright medium ruby. Complex nose melds smoky black raspberry, brown spices, mocha and smoked meat. Dense and fresh, with a sappy spice character and an intriguing saline quality. Concentrated and exhilaratingly high-toned in the mouth, with a nicely restrained sweetness. Thanks to low yields, this fruit was harvested very early. Finishes with very fine tannins and sappy persistence. Offers superb potential."
