Spicy, oak-inflected aromas of cherry, licorice and roasted coffee. Medium-bodied and firm, the cherry flavor braced by fresh acids and supported by gentle, dusty tannins. Finishes youthfully taut and with impressive persistence, a note of tobacco sneaking in on the back.
This wine has a simply delicious nose. The taste is in absolute harmony with the nose - the fruit is tasty, almost chewy and then the wine does a little dance and subtly, smoothly cloaks itself in tannins. It tasted like sitting in front of the fire with a good book.
