Luminous and plum-colored, this wine seduces from the start. The aromas suggest perfectly ripened but not raisined or jammy fruit; there's a pleasing mix of sweet strawberry and cherry candy highlighted with streaks of fresh earth and leaf. Beautifully proportioned, this wine is selected from the best barrels of the oldest estate vineyards.
