Aromas of rose, blue flower, wild berry and a hint of forest floor lead the way along with a balsamic note. The extremely ripe palate offers raspberry compote, licorice and a green note of powdered sage alongside bracing tannins that leave a gripping, drying finish. Give the tannins a few years to unwind then drink.
