This balanced wine is rich in velvety texture, with a backbone of structured tannins and a hint of earthy minerality. The fruit takes on a compelling tone of linzer torte, with layers of juicy blackberry and black cherry, but never veers too far, pulling back on the ripeness to find complexity, harmony and grace.
