Blue flower, woodland berry, cake spice, menthol and a whisper of vineyard dust come together on the nose while the smooth, juicy, palate doles out ripe red cherry, crushed strawberry, star anise and cinnamon. It's a lovely wine, with polished, enveloping tannins and fresh acidity that provide an elegant, accessible structure.
