The aromas offer enticing layers of ripe strawberry, French plum, loganberry and anise, with hints of blueberry, cola and spice. On the palate, this medium-weight wine is graceful and inviting with abundant red fruit notes of raspberry, cherry and plum, as well as more sophisticated elements of forest floor and tobacco leaf, all supported by firm, age-worthy tannins and a streak of uplifting acidity.
