Appearance: Aroma: Taste
Upfront red fruit sets the stage for more subdued nuances of mulberry, rosehip and violets to follow suit. As it matures, this wine will unveil a more savory play of bay leaf and thyme, hinting towards an Old-World style.
Pruned, sappy rosebush notes are indicative of youth with elegant floral notes that carries through. Fruit sweetness hits the back of the palate with porcelain-like tannins that will chisel this into a serious and powerful wine to be.
