A Sipping Wine for Casual Affairs.
This is spicy and just a little grassy on the nose, with dark, liquory fruit topped with nettles and sandalwood. The aromas turn more towards the sandalwood side of things with air. This is smooth and elegant with really fine cherry fruit on the palate and aromatic raspberry accents. Gaining weight and some density with air, this is drinking very well in the classic European style. Finishes with a burst of spice and good fruit persistence. This is quite good. 87pts
