A lifting menthol streak infuses the ripe red plum and berry aromas and flavors of this wine, with a nice minerality lingering underneath it all. Balanced with medium acidity and moderate but fine tannins, the wine's finish shows a cinnamon and nutmeg spice accent appears after swallow. Very drinkable now.
