The Sexy Stuff: The nose leads off with a beguiling mix of black raspberry, tart cherry, tea rose and fresh cedar. Palate weight is medium, possessing a touch of rich forest floor that pops in contrast with floral tones and bright acidity. Flavor profile is balancing right on the edge of new world and old world wines. The structure and chemistry of this wine lead us to believe it will be a fascinating wine to watch age.
