Berry aromas with a mineral twang lead to notes of earth, olive and freshly fallen leaves. As per usual for Almaviva, the palate is round and smooth as silk. Blackberry, cassis, toasty oak and cocoa powder flavors finish creamy and oaky, but this still holds the line and is perfectly balanced for the long haul. Best from 2016 through 2022.
